I have been told by others who only have one co-ax cable from the dish that putting a co-ax link then between the output to the other cable input you can sometimes record or watch a second channel depending on 'polarisation'. This can vary depending on regional selection.

In both of my installations I opted for the quad head and dual co-ax feeds to the Humax boxes. That's except the one remaining Sky box we have in another bedroom that only has a single feed.
Plus we still retain the freeview channels via the TV's own tuners.


The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000.
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.

As long as those channels you want to watch / record at the same time are on the same frequency group.

eg Channel 4 and Film 4.. fine both on the same group (Horizontal low)
But Channels 4 and E4... no, two different groups, (Horizontal low and Vertical low)

BBC and ITV regions are also split between these two groups.
And you may find your local BBC 1 region on 101 is on one group, and your local ITV1 region on 103 is on another...
