I have just bought a Samsung TV with built in Freesat tuner, so does this mean i can just plug in my old Sky dish & get Freesat channels?

mark stanley: Yes! You have a 6, 7 or 8000 series TV (lucky you), and all you need to do is connect the F connection on the back to the old sky dish connection.

In fact, if you have the 7000 or 8000, you have two Freesat tuners (as well as two Freeview HD tuners). This is to allow you to use one tuner to record (to an external hard drive), while you using the other to watch (high level Panasonics can do the same thing). Obviously you'll need twin LNB's to do this.

BTW - do you use the snazzy extra controller and voice activation, and if so, does it work well?

re IAN TELFORD above surely if he stops paying SKY the recording will stop working, even though he can still get Freesat?

Hi there,

If I am connected to the Crystal Palace transmitter, can I still be affected by 4G disruption? I know that they run alot lower than 800mhz, the highest actually being 546mhz. Does that mean I will not be affected?

Eric: During the testing period, there was a 0% effected rate for Crystal Palace. The transmitter is a very powerful TV transmitter as well as being a long way from the 800MHz range.

rick: Even if your aerial has moved a little, your not going to lose all signal. Start with your aerial lead - is it plugged in? Then trace the aerial signal back - is there a loose connection?, or even a break. If it looks like it might be to do with the aerial itself, have a look if its in the loft (if its an old aerial, with old cable, then look to replace - see ATV of Sheffield for info). If its on the roof (and if its moved, perhaps the cable has broken), then I'd get a professional out - I have no intention of breaking my neck on a roof, and I don't thing anyone should go up if they dont know what they are doing.
