    Does anyone know how Sky know that the second receiver is connected to the same phone line, do they phone the Sky+ box and that send's the message on to the second receiver ? ( I can't believe I just said that ). I fancy the Sky+ system but, best part of £300 for the box, £10 for the privelege, £12 for the extra subscription and an extra phone line extention to fit:( is it worth the trouble, maybe I could just make Blair Witch II with the money insted (got to be better than the first one).:)

    CLI on the line will tell them which number it is on when it calls back.

    You could turn off CLI, don't know if they will react to that, seems likely but not heard anything specific.

    If you don't connect it to a phone line at all you will have problems though as they will attempt to contact the box to ensure it has not been given to someone else with your cheap second sub.
