    hello

    I just moved house and i they left the mini dish up so i plugged my sky box in and all working fine.

    At my house before i had a second box in my room with the card which i am still paying for every month.

    My question is how do i connect my second box to my main boix without calling sky out todo it, whats the best way of doing this.

    What will i need? Where will i get it? How will i do it?

    Thanks in Advance.

    You will need to replace the existing single LNB with a twin or a quad unit and then run a new cable to the second digibox.

    At the other house were you a multiroom/mirror subscriber (second card for an additional £10 a month) becuase if you were SKY would have supplied and installed a new dish with all the wiring under their moving scheme (£40 last time I looked).

    If not then all the bits you need can be picked up from many online dealers or a local satellite supplier/installer.

    Satcure is as good a place as any to see what is on offer and prices and they also have a range of "ebooks" that will be a good guide to installing sat hardware if you are starting from scratch.
