    I currently live in the north of Spain and have had a sky digibox hooked up for a couple of years now.
    Howeever, I wouldn't mind going the Sky+ route.
    Therefore, would it be possible to buy a Sky+ digibox, install a double LNB and stick my existing card in the box?

    Would this work??

    No, because the Sky+ box must be set up in the UK first.

    Part of the matching of the Sky+ box to the card is for the Sky+ box to call home and you can not do that from Spain.

    A friend of mine took his card back to the UK and got his Sky+ box authorised and then took it out of the country working.

    Also you will need a Sky+ box that is not subject to Sky's limitation of having it connected to the telephone for a year.

    Thanks for the info.

    Looks like I will have to get creative!
