Do you have to change the LNB for Sky Q
When upgrading to Sky Q it will be necessary to replace your exising LNB for a Wideband or Sky Q compatible LNB. When you have an existing Sky dish and upgrade to Sky Q you will need to replace the LNB. The LNBs come with a clamp that will fit the new Mk 4 dishes that have now been standard for a few years.
Will Sky Q LNB work with Sky HD
Sky Q hybrid LNB for the Sky mini dish.
The normal outputs will work with Sky HD, Freesat or free to air and CI satellite receivers. The 2 Sky Q outputs connect to your Sky Q receiver.
Does Sky q need two cables
This isn’t the case with the Sky Q box as it needs two satellite cables connected to a wideband LNB. This is because the two signals are not identical like with Sky+ and Freesat+. But like I already said it is possible to Sky Q on one cable with no loss of services using dSCR technology.
How many dish cables do I need for Sky Q
Only you know the Probable dish location and main Q box position @Twcat19 . You need enough internally to reach your Q box and best to allow a couple of metres at the dish end (per cable). As you say two runs are required.
Do I get a new dish with sky Q
At present, there’s no specific update on when prospective buyers will be able to get their hands on this new, broadband-only Sky Q option. However, Sky pledged to begin to offer Sky Q without the need for a satellite dish in Austria and Italy sometime this year during its latest earnings call.
Does Sky q need a new satellite dish
Sky confirms no satellite dish required from late 2018. The new plans will see the latest Sky Q TV service made available to customers without the installation of a satellite dish, with programmes instead delivered over broadband to a new set-top box.
What’s the difference between Sky Plus and Sky Q
The two main boxes are the premium Sky Q 2TB (formerly Sky Q Silver) and Sky Q 1TB. The key difference is you need the 2TB box for 4K Ultra HD content. The Sky Q Mini is for bedrooms and second rooms, and piggy-backs off your main Q box.

Why does Sky dish have two cables
A Standard Sky box just needs one cable feed from the satellite dish LNB, but Sky+ and Sky+HD need two feeds from dish to box. Well, the Sky+ box has two tuners (to allow simultaneous viewing and recording of different channels) and therefore two feeds from the dish are required.
Can Sky q work with one cable
Many Sky installations are still using a single cable from the satellite dish and it may not be possible to add a second cable due to the existing cable running underground or perhaps channeled into walls. With Sky+ HD it was possible to put the Sky box into Single Feed Mode but this is not possible with Sky Q.
What cables do I need for Sky
If you have an HD-ready TV, plug the HDMI cable into the HDMI socket on the back of your box and the other end into the HDMI 1 socket (or another available HDMI socket) on the back of your TV. If you don’t have an HD-ready TV, use an AV cable (red, white & yellow) to connect your SKY box to your TV.
