Upgrading from Sky+HD to Freesat+HD | Freesat
Wednesday 16 January 2013 2:56PM

Hi I have a TV Co delivering and setting up a HUMAX HDR1000S for freesat on Thursday to replace my SKY+ HD box as I have now cancelled my sky subscription. My question please, currently we have a spider box in the loft which connects all the tv's to the sky box enabling me to watch the same sky programme in any room. Can I do the same with the Humax box or will they also have to leave the existing sky box connection. This also powers the tv in the bedroom when I want to watch freeviww on that set so the old sky box sends the signal to that tv when its off. Very many thanks.

Thank you for the information, you are an absolute 'star' as nobody else was able to answer my questions. So basically, then will the sky box run alongside the Humax to act as the modultor. Thanks Again. Anne

Thank you again. TV people have installed the new freesat+ recorder and also left the sky box in place so that I can push the signal (only) to the other rooms. Othersets have freeview on one set and indep sat box on kitchen tv. will have to get new tv for kitchen eventually. thank you again.

Anne: I cant tell you how confused i am with all this and basically disappointed with the connections made by Hughes TV. In the main living room the Humax sits alongside the sky box and the sky box is on standby (off red light) and is, I am informed, no longer operational. In the Kitchen, I have a small sat freeview receiver, for that tv but that only works if the Humax box is on and sending out signal although Humax freesat not avail on that tv. In Bedroom, same situation, set has freeview built in, but if the freesat humax box not on, there is no signal. Othere tv in other bedroom there is no signal whatsoever whereas we did get sky. Is this a 'mess up' by Hughes not knowing what they are doing. I am 66 and my husband 72 and we havnt a clue. I have two days to complain to Hughes and reject the set if I wish. Is there a tv/aerial expert in the Hopton on sea area please. Anne

Thank you again for all your help we now have all this sorted following a third visit from TV people. The sky dish has two cable connections, which now go to the Humax 1000s box. We have left the sky box in position so that acts as a modulator only to send a signal to all the other rooms. Bedroom set has freeview works fine, kitchen set has freeview receiver alongside, other bedroom sets have nothing so tv's are redundant without a receiver, but the signal is there just need to get new sets! Have been told its possible to have additional feed from the sky dish by replacing the central bit, and still watch Sky on all sets (but not with Sky plus as only one extra cable feed) but feel the prohibitive cost of another £100 is probably not worth it as can buy a new small set for that. I hope Humax will eventually develop a box like the sky+ unit with Humax+ so that it feeds other sets in the same way, now that would really set the cat amongst the pidgeons. Thank you again. Anne
