    Hi all

    Have searched all the FAQs I can find and one question still escapes me with Sky+...

    I have my Sky box fed to all the TVs in the house. Say my pa is watching live football in one room off the Sky box, can I watch something I recorded off Sky to the Sky+ box? Don't suppose so...

    Thanks for any assistance
    Andrew

    Nope, SKY+ has two tuners but one feeds the internal hard drive so the unit will only ever output a single channel via it's RF/Scart and s-video connections at any one time.

    To watch two seperate channels you will need two digiboxes each with independent access to an LNB and if you want to watch a second subscription channel you will need another smartcard. The new deal means SKY+ users can get the mirror subscription for £10 a month instead of the current £15.

    No, that doesn't work. The output on TV and VCR SCART sockets during a Copy operation are identical.
