    Im trying to hook up my Sky box to my Xbox One and it just gives me the lost signal error all the time.
    The skybox is basically running as a freeview right now as I cancelled the subscription a few months ago, so we get basic Freeview channels only.
    Am I missing something here due to sleep deprivation , or do you need to have a current Sky subscription for this to work!

    The TV/Guide only working in the US currently Microsoft said as they are in talks with SKY//VIRGIN etc for the future last thing I read on Xbox.com was that only works in us and don't have a date for when it will be availble outside, is what I read or is it now ok in the UK

    Even if I'm wrong it wouldn't matter any way weather you have a subscribtion or not the Box still sends out a signal but it has to be a hdmi output

    Edit: NVM mind I see Darkside saying its working and he's in the UK so all is good

    Did you go and buy it from Tesco then Bullet as you said?
