    HI
    Just discovered this forum and this is my first posting. Perhaps these type of queries have already been answered, but I haven't spotted it.

    Is it possible to operate more than one Sky digital box from my dish? I have acquired an additional sky digital box from a relative and would like to make use of it.

    Is this easy do? Is there a way of splitting the signal where it comes into the house or does it have to come directly from the dish which is quite accessible?

    Many thanks in advance

    You can't split the signal. You need to buy a 4-output LNB (that's the part in the centre of the dish). Connect your existing box to one output (or two if it is Sky+), and connect the second box to one of the other outputs. You can get LNB's from sellers on Ebay, or from specialist suppliers of satellite equipment. If you're lucky, you might already have a multi-output LNB, in which case you only need plugs and cable.
