Sky+ box to record setanta on multi-room

I currently have Sky+ with multi-room, with the 2nd Sky box currently as a standard digi-box.

I have Setanta on this 2nd box, and it's annoying that I can't pause etc on it, so I'm thinking of getting another Sky+ box to replace it....

If I get another Sky+ box off fleabay or somewhere, will I be able to use the normal Sky+ features on this 2nd box as well...?

Thanks for any info....

Yes, but remember to contact Sky to have the Multiroom activated for Sky+

....Right - OK! Thanks for that...

Does it cost any extra om top of what I pay at the moment...? (and it DOES work with Setanta as well does it...?...even though it's not a Sky channel!)

No, nothing extra. Sky+ features are free as long as you have a minimum 1Mix subscription.
Yes, it will work with Setanta - as it does with FTA channels such as BBC and ITV - and Setanta is activated on the card.
Setanta Multiroom is a different matter, is activated separately and costs £2.99/month per extra box

Great, thats all I wanted to know. I only have Satanta activated on the 2nd digibox - the other Sky+ box in the main living room has everything (except the Movie channels), and just wanted to check it would have the Sky+ features too before spending on a new box...

Thanks for your help fernandez :smashin:
