Just after some advise (awaits the replies)
Ive just cancelled my sky q subscription and am sending the equipment back to sky but i still have an old sky hd box in the loft and was wondering if i could just plug it in to the cables and are able to still recieve the free channels?
Hopefully there is a sky engineer in lewes that reads this forum.

Yeah, the old box should work as essentially a freeview digibox. They will just block the subscription channels.

Ahhh sorry, Sky Q is not something I'm overly familiar with. Looks like for Sky HD, it needs to be hooked up to a satellite dish, where as Q delivers content through broadband.

I guess you don't have an aerial or sat dish anymore? As most modernish tellys have freeview built-in and just need to be autotuned (and connected to the aerial) and you should be good. Sky HD presumably still requires the dish to be active.

Yeah sky dish still here because you still get the signal for sky q through it but after reading the first reply and looking on the link looks like i will need a new part fitted but rather than going and getting a part which i know nothing about just thought id see if there was a tv engineer on here that could offer me some advice

I think you may just have to connect both cables from the satellite dish to the hd box, but I'm not 100% sure as I haven't used Sky for many years.
