    Hi everyone, bought a v8s open box and all channels were fine until the sky engineer came in to install sky every channel for £22.44 and now when I plug my open box back in to watch BT it says no signal.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    is it sky q that's installed? If so you need a hybrid lnb for the box to work

    Dont think so.... apparently its easy to fit (one pin to get out then just pull down & its ready to take off?), unless your dish is too high? Then its gonna be a problem

    You could do it ,but you would need for example, 2 HMDI CABLES one for each output port from the boxes into the tv input.
