Can I use Sky+ with just free-to-air channels?

Gary: If you have a signal strength "and" quality of around 75% or so then there is no reason for your box not finding and retaining the channels, that is unless the power supply to the tuner is defective and with this being something that is a known problem in quite a number of boxes, albeit that in many cases these mostly being ones that are allowed to run on the warm side by not having sufficient ventilation, because unlike Dave with a indication of 40% quality which for a Sky signal is not really good enough, whereas you on the other hand are well inside of the signal drop out safety margin.
In cases like yours its best to seek out someone with a similar set up to yourself and see if they will allow you to tune in your Sky box on their system, or alternatively have them try their box on your dish, because by being able to do this cuts out endless tests having to be made.
