    Hi,

    I have pre-registered and have a few questions if anyone can help.

    Will it be possible to have a Sky+, SkyHD and normal Digibox on the same dish and would this effect the quality in any way?

    I have Sky+ with the Multiroom option already on my subscription and will be looking to add the SkyHD box to another TV in a different room (Samsung HD).

    I imagine that I will only have to pay the extra £10 subscription per month for the SkyHD service as per the pricing plan?

    Also, does the SkyHD box need to be connected to a phone line for the first period of subscription like Sky+ had to?

    Thanks and sorry for the obvious questions :thumbsup: ,
    Christian

    You will need 5 feeds from the dish so SKY would supply an OCTO LNB, there should be no issues with reception if the installation is done right:)

    If you want to have all 3 boxes accessing subscription channels then you will need another multiroom card, another £10 a month and yep all three boxes will require a phone connection.
    To get the HD channels on the SKY+ HD you will need to pay the extra £10 and yes a phone connection is required but that's a given since you are multiroom.
