Sorry if this is in the wrong place!
We are currently in the process of moving from a house to a flat, the flat has a private and shared dish, the shared dish has 2 feeds going to the main room and the private dish has 2 feeds going to the second bedroom, the feeds are in the correct place for our requirements.
Does anyone know if I will need an engineer visit or can I just plug in and go, is there anything wrong with receiving the information via 2 dishes

Re: Moving Home
You'll need a couple of "shot-gun" cables to connect the STB to the connections on the wall. If you do not already have these, then you can purchase a suitable piece of cable from a variety of places.
Satellite Aerial Cables
(you'll need two of the cables listed in the link above, but do get them the same length)
You shouldn't need to arrange for a Sky engineer to visit, unless you have problems. Do remember that if one of the feeds does not work, it will be the responsibility of the management company to get the dish engineers out to fix it.

Re: Moving Home
You can buy twin "shotgun" cables with plugs already fitted (or supplied separately). Use twin WF100 cable for minimum signal loss* (choice of 6 colours) or twin WF65 cable (thinner, more flexible, less obtrusive) in white or black. Don't forget to order clips if you want to fix cable to a wall or skirting board.
For a short run (e.g. 2 metres) signal loss is negligible so choose whichever suits your purpose best.
