Someone help please!

I live in an apartment and have had sky for quite some time, but I recently upgraded to Sky+HD, which was fine. Only thing is that I cannot record a different channel to the one I am watching. A bit of a drawback. Apparently there is only feed coming into the apartment.......anyone with any ideas as to what I can do to be able to watch one channel and record something else? Also any ideas if multi room is a possibility?

Appreciate any suggestions!

Does any other room in your apartment have a cable/satellite feed? If so, you would need the original installer to run a satellite signal via that second feed to your sky box, to allow you to view another channel or record two things at once.

That's how it's setup in my apartment block. There was only one central cable feeding the living room & another in a bedroom. They used the feed to the bedroom as the second feed & ran a cable to the living room.

Call your installer. If you're in Dublin, it will likely have been KBO who installed it in your block.

Yeah you need another wire feed from the dish, you more than likely have a quad LNB which means there should still be 3 holes beside the wire coming out of the dish just need to run the same wire into the back of your Box

Not really, most complexes these days have an independent installer to maintain the system. Getting more connections are dependent on the initial communal setup. Most non optic cable setups only have one sat cable in.

There is only one central feed in the living room, there is just a standard tv socket in the bedroom.
