    Hi

    I curently have Sky Digital & also use a VCR :blush:. I'd like to upgrade to Sky+ when I feel the price is right & also buy a DVD player.

    I live in an old converted barn with 18" walls. When I first had Sky installed here, I asked for a duplexer so that only one cable runs down the house & through the wall. I understand that Sky+ uses 2 LNBs & therefore needs 2 cables, I suppose however that I will no longer need my terrestial aerial, as I will be able to use Sky+ for time-shifting.

    Q: Can the Sky+ cables use the duplexer, or will I need another cable & another hole in the wall?

    Regards
    Nick
