I have a Veon SAT 101 receiver, single channel, one LNB Sat dish.  The Veon has a Pass through output.  Can I use that Pass Through to run a second receiver and be able to record any channel regardless of what might be recording on the initial receiver? 

Cheers

You can use the pass through to connect another set top box in another room, most people have a Splitter Device which can split the signal to other areas of the home but the pass through is the quick way to get you ready!

If you have any further questions, feel free to send them through.

Hi Josh.

Thanks for the reply.  I have a subsidiary question just to clarify:  If, for example, I was recording from Prime TV on one set top box, can I still view and /or receive TVNZ 1on the second?  I ask because I read somewhere something about needing a separate LNB for each satellite channel group.

Hi Josh. 

A second question:
The EPG has this thing about automatically selecting both instances of a programme when choosing to record a programme.  That is, if I select to record at 20:30 on TVNZ 1+1 it also selects to record on TVNZ 1 an hour earlier.  That's ok so long as I do not want to record some other channel's programme at 19:30.  As it is, there is a conflict and the EPG does not allow me to set a recording on another channel at the earlier time.  Is the any way around that? 
Cheers

You will be able to watch all channels on the other set top box if you record on another box, this only affects the recording box because the tuner is being used and the other groups of channels will not be available until the recording has completed. The pass through is separate  from the recorder.

Recording from the guide (or EPG) uses something called "alternate instance" which always chooses to record the original / first screening of the selected programme. 

The recorder would see the same programme on the Plus 1 channel as being identical to the one on the original channel and would always opt to record the show on the original channel and skip the one on the Plus 1 channel (unless there is a prior conflict in your booked recordings).

The only other way is to set a manual timer in this instance. 

Hi Josh.

Thanks.
