    According to Sky I can have up to 4 receivers or 2 Sky+ boxes. I want 2 Sky+ for the living room and an ordinary Digibox for the bedroom. Will sky let me have a mirror sub on the second Sky+ as well as one for the bedroom?

    Thanks

    Only 4 can cureently be supported by a single mini dish ie one with a quad LNB but i dont see why you cant have an extra dish. Maybe its a sky thing, try a local independant installer.
    PS why would you want 2 SKY+ boxes??? in the same room.

    Why don't you take the quad LNB and add it to a distribution system?

    That way you would be able to upgrade as you go.

    Have a look at the TechniSat TechniSwitch 5/4 G2 http://www.sateuropa.co.uk/product_overview.asp?id=111&catid=1&subcat=11

    Would seem to be the best option for you if you want more than 4 Sky feeds without having 2 or more dishes.
