      If you run another cable from the dish and buy him a Freesat box that's capable of recording, you should have no problems. The LNB (the fitting in the centre of the dish) should have at least one spare outlet. Be careful not to disturb the LNB or dish when fitting additional cables.

      How to put the plugs on
