A Sky+HD digibox is ideally to be used with two cable feeds from your satellite dish. This allows you to use the full potential of your Sky+HD box, and allows you to watch one channel and record another at the same time.

However, in some cases, especailly in community satellite installations, it may not be possible to have a seconds cable feeding your Sky+HD box.

Having only a single cable to your Sky+HD box can cause some problems, such as the “No satellite signal is being received” on screen error message, if you do not tell your Sky+HD box that you are only using a single cable.

This can only be done on a Sky+HD Digibox.

This is the process to set your Sky+HD box into single feed / cable mode using the latest Sky HD EPG.
