      thicko needs help

      hi, just been given an amstrad sky box with a card. i have just moved into a house that has a sky digital dish and two cables into the house. the box only has one type f connector, so i suspect this is an original sky box not digital? will i still be able to conect it? i am only looking to use it for freeview until i get straight.

      Sounds like it IS a sky digital box just not a SKY+ box.

      Sky digital requires a single feed from the LNB
      Sky+ and Sky HD require a dual feed from the LNB

      As the box you have been given has only one connector, just connect up one feed and away you go!
