i have just installed sky+ in the living room, can i use my old sky box in my spare bedroom if i run a line from the LNB to the sky box. if you can, what do you do about the sky card?
many thanks for any help
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.
