    @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

    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.

    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.
