    We have sky+ in one room and a mirror sub in the other on a standard digibox. I now have 4 sky+ boxes so was considering putting one in the other room so we would have 2 sky+ boxes. Has anyone done this and what are the costs? (additional sub-wise)

    I assume you already have a Quad LNB since you are running an additional standard digibox so there is the cost of 1 new cable for connecting to the spare LNB output.

    Subscriptions....
    If you have the SKY+ fee waived due to having two or more SKY premium channels then the mirror subscription (once activated) will also have the SKY+ fee waived.
    So basically there is no change in the total price you are currently paying when changing the standard digibox to a SKY+.

    I am not 100% sure if the same applies to those who have a channel package that requires the £10 SKY+ sub to be paid, I would assume the second SKY+ also requires an additional £10 paid as well.
