Hebrides LNB to receive Freesat and Sky
My Location
Staffordshire
Am a electrician and installed my own dish and cabling, got this LNB as want to recieve SKY Q on main TV and Freesat in two other rooms, set dish up using a basic hand held device got Freesat working fine with all channels.When SKY engineer came to fit box said he could see LNB, when I connected Sky Q outputs to my Freesat TV did manage to get a few channels so I would think SKY Q outputs on LNB.Sky engineers will not work on any equipment that they have not installed so need to sort this before I arrange a Sky revisit to fit and set up box.SKY Q IS A PAIN IN THE ASS, any help much appreciated.

OK, so you've connected the two wideband outputs to the Q box and it shows no signal? Wideband outlets are horizontal or vertical and you need to get them the right way around. Did the Sky installer not install the Q box?

Thanks for your very helpful reply, didn’t realise Sky Q connections on LNB were horizontal and vertical specific, when Sky engineer did his tests he said he couldn’t get a signal so wouldn’t leave the Sky Q box even though I am now in a contract.Guy was really unhelpful didn’t suggest that I may have connected LNB the wrong way round.Now I know this is probably my issue as when Freeview outputs on LNB are connected directly to my TV all is fine, will book another visit from a Sky engineer.

Swap the cables going into the Q box, it's as simple as that.
