Yes, you can take a feed from a spare outlet on the existing quad LNB.

If you only want the FTA/FTV channels get a freesatfromsky card direct from Sky (£19.57) which will ensure the correct BBC1/ITV1 regions, that FIVE will appear on the EPG and enable Sky3/Setanta Sports News.

If you want the same channels as your main subscription then Multiroom is the only answer - £9.75/month and both boxes connected to the same phone line at all times - contact Sky.
