      The bit that goes on the dish is called an lnb.
      If you arnt in a hurry for the cable theres loads of sellers on ebay.
      Go for the shotgun cable like this its much neater :-
      20M TWIN BLACK SATELlTE SHOTGUN CABLE SKY + HD & CLIPS on eBay (end time 19-Jan-10 20:01:16 GMT)
      If you are reasonably handy you should be able to do it yourself tho I take no responsibility for you falling off a ladder, etc
      Once done you will need to call sky to pair your viewing card with the new box.
