    I have already sky hd box with 2xlnb

    What is the best way to connect a skybox f3 up to the existing system ie 2xlnb between the two boxes?

    I've heard of the loop through but I don't totally understand it as people talk about turning off lnb power supplies on one of the boxes etc
    I am now scared of blowing a fuse or lnb because of this.

    Thanks

    One lnb with two outputs!

    I know the best way is another cable & lnb output but it would be harder.

    I want the other Box for hd as I'm not paying the extra for hd on sky.

    One box would be off when the other is on anyway, would spoil the recording I must admit..
