Hi all, not sure if i'm posting in the right place but hey ho..

I currently live in a apartment block and have been unable to receive sky tv etc because the communal dish has been broke since we moved in
.

Last week some maintenace work was carried out to repair this
but as I don't really trust the owners of the building to have done this correctly I was wondering if anybody could tell me if there was any way of checking if i was receiving a signal throught the socket in my flat. I didn't want to ring Sky as they apparently charge for call outs if there is no signal.

Thanks.

Have you got a sky box or can you borrow one, as there is a signal strength bar that will show any signal being received. Press the services button then 4 and then 6.

Thanks for the replies. I haven't got a sky box or know anyone who's willing to part with their's. I would be interested in purchasing a signal meter. I can only test the signal from inside and i can only find these meters that look like they test from the dish itself. I have also been told a Digisat Pro might work, any suggestions?

Thanks

Problem with the cheaper signal units is they require a satellite receiver to be connected. Might be cheaper to buy a second hand sky box off ebay.
