    I've currently got Sky + in the lounge and my original Digibox in my TV room. At present i'm running my TV in the bedroom off a 'Eye', but would rather just add another digibox. What would be the best way to do this?

    for £150 inc installation sky will provide a pace mini box, only has one scart, no rgb output, and no photo audio sockets

    extra subscribtion will cost £10 per month,

    search the net on www.sky.com

    or if you wanna buy one there cheap at the momnet, or you can buy a panasonic 31 - off my for £60

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3067576688&category=29784

    for an image.

    then you just ran a cable from you LNB to the new box, and ring sky for a viewing card, that will be cheaper and you will get a better box than the minibox.


    its your choise, obviously

    Steve111, buy Sky+, they'll install the quad LNB - you need a 'wire' from dish to each box. Most systems have dual LNBs on the dish - 2 outputs for 2 boxes. A quad LNB has 4. Sky + uses 2. I imagine you've only 2 eyes, so you will struggle to watch more than one program at once. You can watch 1 record another, & a 2nd person can watch on 1 of your other 2 boxes. If you keep the link you'll still have 4 viewing locations, 2 independant boxes, +, allowing you to recor, watch at once. Sky + is great, its got my viewing to 20 hrs a day, after this I'm struggling to find anything to watch. I've got some DVDs for christmas though. If it doesn't improve I'll be watching some old videos!
