mr a cox: I would suspect that you have a Freesat+ box - which has two satellite tuners in it, so you can watch one thing whilst recording another.

Because the box provides power and a signal to the LNB (the thing on the end of the dish's arm) to switch "polarity", each tuner requires a cable to connect a separate output on the LNB package.

Why can't I receive the freeview channel Yesterday through my Freesat+ box (Sandstrom) HD Digital Satellite TV Recorder.

Jean: Because it is scrambled and only available via satellite on Sky's subscription service.

You might be able to receive it on Freeview from Emley Moor.
