    Am thinking of buying a "free to air" box to supplement my sky box while away in Europe. How do I fit this box along side the sky box?

    You will have to swap the LNB lead over ( seen a couple of switch boxes but when I looked in to them they are not great to say the least unless you pay about £80 for one ) but apart from that, your telly will proly have more than one input available so just use one of the other options to connect the box to the tv :)

    If your just using your sky box with a "freesat" card, then your "free to air" box will do the same thing without a card, however when you say using in EU you will not get BBC ITV must past France or Germany. If it is a UK "free to air" box then you will not be able to try other satellites. To receive other satellites you need a good receiver box and if possible a "auto" dish system that locks on for you as many find manually tuning dish is a pain in the .........

    Have a look here:

    I have the VU+ Solo2, but that is because I have been into this area for years.
