Second sky box


Standard Member
Hi All
I have an amstrad drx550 already installed in the front room but intend to have one in the bedroom too and was wondering if i need a viewing card for the second box although both are only used for the free channels, no packages are used
Thanks all

you can get channel 4 and 5 if you do a manual tune via add channels.No epg info and a bit long winded to switch channels.Sky 3 is not avaliable through manual tune though and you wil need either an expired sky card or a freesat card to watch that.
