    Hello, im thinking about getting Sky+ later this year. I would be getting it with sky multiroom, and was wondering if I can have the Sky + box as the 2nd box, as we have a normal digibox currently installed, or does the Sky+ box have to be the "1st" box. I dont see any reason why it would have to be, but I just thought i'd check. Thanks for any help.

    I don't think there is any technical reason why one box would be considered as first and the other second, it makes some sense for the SKY+ to carry the primary subscription along with it's own SKY+ subscription but that doesn't mean it has to be in any particular location.
    I assume you want to leave the digibox where it is and install SKY+ in another room?

    Yeah, basically the current box is in the living room, and I want my own in my bedroom, which would be the Sky+ box. I just thought because of it recording etc, that it would have to be the primary box or whatever.

    I don't think it will matter as you can have it so both boxes are Sky+ if you want, therefore the 2nd box can be Sky+ (hope that makes sense!)
