    I'm thinking about Sky+ but I don't want to run another cable into my living room (exisiting cable is under floorboards to keep GF happy). How many cables does the Sky+ box require? As it has two tuners, does it need two seperate feeds from the dish?

    Regards

    Rob

    SKY installers I believe are using twin cables in one sheath.
    With a little effort I guess you could thread the new cable through the existing holes(May need widening a little) without the need for major furniture upheavel :)
