      Hold on, let me check my magic ball

      The best thing to do would be to get a selection of plugs and take some satellite cable with you to make patch leads, there not too expensive, have a look at the screwfix website, they have lot's of different ones.

      You will certainly need 'f' plugs at the Sky box end so get plenty of these. I am sure there will be local companies about there with everything you may not remember.

      Do you know if the dish is aligned to Sky? I wont work if it isn't.

      If the dish is suitable, the connectors are normally F connectors.

      So if it is a standard STB and not Sky+ you would just need an F to F type lead. But the thing is what is the connector on the faceplate?

      If it is a Sky+ or Sky+HD box then you need two leads to either to get both tuners working, although one would work fine on its own.
