How do I connect both Freeview and SKY to the same satellite dish?

To connect both a Freeview box or recorder for Satellite and a SKY decoder to one satellite dish you need to use a single power pass splitter and connect the power pass side to the SKY decoder as shown below.

The LNB stands for the Low Noise Blocker on your satellite dish.

Setting up Freeview and Sky on the same satellite dish

Please note: with this set up, you'll need to keep your SKY decoder plugged in for the Freeview Satellite box or recorder to work, as the SKY decoder will be powering the LNB (which controls the sound).  If you were to remove the SKY decoder, also remove the single power pass splitter and connect the cable from the satellite dish directly to your Freeview box or recorder.
