    If I change the lnb to a quad/dual then plug it in to a sky box,can I leave the box in the attic space,run a cable,and use some kind of eye in order to change channels .
    I have sky in the living room,which is also piped from the extra output to our bedroom,controling via an eye.I have just got hold of a sky+ 160 box and would like to use it in the kitchen without having the box in the kitchen.
    Thanks
