Will Sky Q LNB work with Sky HD?

Re: Sky cables work on sky q box but not sky+HD You will need to change the LNB in the dish back to a standard one or a Hybrid one. Alternatively you could buy a freesat box that works with a sky Q LNB (wideband) which I understand from other poststhe newer 4K boxes will do.

Is a sky Q LNB different?

The Sky Q LNB itself has two outputs which are not the same. One is a Horizontal output and the other a vertical output. These cables are then connected to your Sky Q box and any additional Sky multi-room boxes are installed with a wireless connection (not via the WIFI router) and the secondary box.

What LNB is Sky?

Will Sky Q work on old LNB?

No, connecting to an old LNB will have the box probably limited to 2 tuners. you’d really need 4 standard connections into some sort of wideband adaptor. This would not work on a distribution system as the wideband LNB or adaptor would interfere with the terrestrial channels.
