      What you need is a stacker/de-stacker.

      This is fitted on your floor where the amp is with the spare output. The two outputs are connected to it and then the one existing feed to your flat is connected (the feeds are now "stacked" into one cable). Then you fit the de-stacket in your flat, connect the one feed into it and then the de-stacker splits it back into two.

      Hey presto, fully functioning Sky+HD with only one cable feed.

      Cost of equipment say 100, 1hr labout 45.00.

      Link:- Global Stacker De-Stacker (60m Version)

      This is a 60m version, you can get 30m versions cheaper.

      Lots cheaper than the 600 and no extra cable to run.

      Access to the dish and running cables is not an option. Anything I do will have to entail splitting the single feed from the socket in my living room, which so far sounds like it's not possible....

      No, it's not. One feed will only ever give you one signal polarity and one frequency range, even if it's split into two. So you can never get full functionality unless you have two feeds from the dish, which can be sent down one cable using a stacker/destacker (if the cables are good enough), or down two cables.

      You don't need to access the dish.

      The stacket goes by the current splitter which you say hase one or two spare feeds. You use the one feed you currently have for your flat and one of the spare ones, this sends both signals down the one existing cable to your flat.

      You then de-stack the signal in your flat to two seperate ones.

      No need to access the dish, you just need access to your floors splitter which you know the location of.

      Ring the company ad ask if they will fit this for you, they couldn't charge 600 for this, it is only a 20 minute job.
