    Default engineer box for sky?

    i had sky installed today, whilst installing the engineeer used a yellow set top box which seemed to get every channel, the engineer offered me one of these boxes for £100 would it work and is it worth £100?
    any help greatly appreciated

    Do you actually mean a set top box, or do you mean his hand held meter, its about 9 inches tall by about 5 inches wide? I certainly have never seen them use anything much other than the yellow digital meter.

    Well you've got me there, never seen one in use, there are meters, the more expensive ones £2000 plus that have their own screen and can view FTA digital satellite channels. But I can't see any real advantage to them having a working digibox, as they are useless for dish alignment.
