@Willo3092 just out of curiosity how would that work say for if you have sky downstairs on sky+ HD box zgemma h2s with remaining channels and a multiroom subscription upstairs for sky+ HD is it possible to use one of those or would it be better sticking to an 8 port Lnb
I don't really know about a genuine Sky receiver, I would guess not unless there is a way of configuring the tuners through the installer menu?
I could be wrong, but , as I understand it,
Unicable requires a specific type of tuner, it wont work with a normal sat tuner, so your box also needs to be unicable compliant,
I think the VU+ is one of the few commonly available boxes that are.
EDIT : although I think there is a splitter available now that works like some sort of Diseqc that allows a normal tuner to work on unicable
Was just wondering with it having image of 28.2e satellite receiver in image as ive got cables run all way round outside of house and looks a bit of an eye sore
All my standard tuners work fine on unicable. They just need to be setup differently in tuner setup:
This is on a Formuler F1 with standard sat tuners
You can get unicable lnb's with legacy outputs as well. You could use legacy for the Sky receiver and unicable to everything else.
just had a look on my F1
yep, its there
will have a look at the edision OSmini in a bit
EDIT : just checked, it is available on the Edision OSmini as well
I wonder if this can be made to work via a diseqc as well,,,,,,,,
I wondered that too. I'm a newbie at this though so lots to learn.
The kit is fairly cheap though, Unicable LNB is less than £40 and splitters between £2 and £6.
