Even more confused so your wanting sat only? Sorry just wanted to make sure I'm giving you the correct advice and it's quite easy to confuse me.

Disable tuner b and have the sat cable in tuner a then setup abm for sky uk.

Any reason why you can't a twin sat box then you can record one channel while watching another

They're both as easy to set up.
To set it up for Sky UK only on the H2H Zgemma you connect a single cable straight from the satellite dish into the back of the box at tuner A.
So essentially yes, it's just the screw in connector you need to hook up for Sky.
You will then in settings need to disable tuner B (the one for virgin) and run AutoBouqetsMaker for sky channels only. (This isn't complicated to do)

My personal advice would be to use a Zgemma H2S box instead of an H2H. A H2S box allows two satellite cables to be plugged in and that allows you to record one channel and watch another simultaneously. The H2S is also considerably more popular and I would say has more support than its H2H counterpart.

Just also to add, when getting a cline (or nline) you will have to specify that it's for Sky (as virgin cline/nlines don't work for Sky channels)
I hope this helps.
