      Tech Help Needed

      Hi,
      My brother has just had HD installed into his flat, When the engineer was there he found that only one sky feed was working (he has 2 outputs on the face plate). He then convinced the man to continue installing so we could sort it later.

      I have had a look at the front of plate which has
      1 telephone socket
      2 Sat sockets
      1 Radio
      1 TV
      1 Return.

      Looking behind the plate, There is a box called a Triax Sat II outlet which has 2 cables connected, 1 connected to 'Sat 2' & one connected to 'Return'
      The one labelled 'Sat I, Radio,TV' is empty.

      Can anyone tell me if there is a way we can get the 2nd feed from the Dish to the plate?

      Thanks in advance.

      You need to run another cable from the dish for the second Transponder.(That's assuming there's a spare feed on the LNB.But to be honest,it's impossible to tell you how & if it's possible with what you're describing.Reason is we dont know how the spart who installed you're services has wired it up.
