    Just fitted the Oyster 85 with Hans remote receiver system.
    The box has two scart fittings, two TV in/ out sockets and Two Sat fittings.
    Question is.
    Are the two Sat connectors , one in and one out to connect to a second receiver or, are they both inputs as this box may have Record Hard drive fitted.

    The Sat dish is connected to lower sat connector and using scart out at the moment.

    Never heard of a hans box, but if the thing hums or makes a noise ( that you can heae when you put your ear to it ) that will be a hard drive, so that would make both the sat connections inputs :)

    The Oyster 85 is just the dish and dish controller S20 :)
    What receiver you put on it is open for choices :)

    Sounds like your Oyster had twin outputs to allow recording one channel while watching or recording another?

    No.. the Oyster in question has a single LNB, it is the receiver that has the two sockets :)
    You can have a twin LNB fitted ( or indeed fit it your self ) if you would like to be able to watch one channel while recording another.
    Some Oyster system have twin feed LNB's too
    The Oyster is really just the dish, its machinery and its control box. The LNB fitted is more or less up to the user as is the receiver :)
