We are in a similar position to Jo. We have freeview equipment and have just moved into a property which has a sky dish. There is also a roof aerial.
However, the aerial connector (the old coaxial type we assume is coming from the aerial) doesn't seem to be working - we get "no signal" messages when we connect up to it. (We've tested it with leads we know are good.) The connector does look somewhat tarnished as if it hasn't been used in a while - and it's also some way from where their TV was installed.
As well as that aerial lead, there are also twin sky cables (black with what I believe are F connectors), but no sky box.
Will both of these cables be coming from the dish, or could one of them be coming from the aerial?
We don't currently have the necessary adapters to connect to these, but am I right in assuming there is no point (if both are associated with the dish)?
We're just wondering if there's any way we can connect the TV without getting an engineer in to check/reconnect the aerial...
