      Should Sky + box work if replacing Sky Q

      Hi,
      My Sky Q failed recently so I tried to attach my old Sky+ box to existing cables. The Sky box powered up ect but there was no picture on my TV (or menu ect). Should Sky + boxes be compatible with the SKy Q cabling?

      Hi,

      The Sky Q box uses a different LNB on the dish and will not work with a Sky+ box.
