    Hi folks

    I read a few years ago on here about a LNB that allows you to take a signal cable into the house and then this can be split / used in a media centre setup for freesat / sky (not sky Q)

    I can’t find this article again nor can I recall the name of said LNB- if anyone knows would they mind sharing . TIA

    Its called UNICABLE lnb teamed with a unicable capable receiver or it may be possible to set up a distribution box but thats beyond me.

    here's' the wiki explanation

    I bought a Unicable LNB and it works a treat with one physical cable. Just replace your existing standard LNB with a Unicable one, and then buy the correct splitter too for inside your house. Once you have the splitter wherever it's convenient you can then wire up multiple tuners from there.

    World of Satellite sell the GT SAT stuff which I have. Works perfectly

    I have a Tiviar Enigma2 system running, you need to change the advanced settings for the tuner to the make and model of Unicable you have. You also need to select a band for it to use. Make sure each tuner uses a different band for it to work.
