Can dishes be user-installed?
Just follow the line that everybody else in your street is pointing [:D]

The guy 2 doors up has this greatbig dish on his house which moves, I'm sure you have to have planning permission for it, its that big..... all you can hear on a summer night is "nrrrrrrrr..(it stops)...nrrrrrr.... click..(finds crap foreign channel)[:mad:]

Yes, but dont expect your Sky engineer to be happy about it when/if he visits your house.

My Dad put ours up when we moved in, and when the Sky engineer came 2
weeks ago to install Sky+ he refused to use the dish... thankfully he
was a top bloke and put us a new one up for free[:D]

You need an LNB with at least 2 outputs, i think the ones they install have four, the  normal sky lnb is only 1.

We got this 3 months ago now,and we have had the full package since day 1,even though the paperwork we signed was not including the sports channels! It's a way of sky making you realise what you'll miss if you change down to what you originally choose. Just beware that you could end up having the full package for ?43 a month. Having said that,we've kept the full package as the sports and movies are pretty good!Enjoy!

Excellent stuff - you won't regret it - glad you've got a Pace box - we had a brand new Amstrad box when it was originally installed a year ago and the box was replaced for a Pace one within 2 weeks as the Amstrad box was knackered!

Really useful having the live pause facility - you'll wonder how you lived without it [:)]

But do you still need it plugged into a telephone line?

I dont want a land line in the house and sky always said you need it plugged into a telephone before they will come out and do the install

Big rip off
