    Hi,

    I'm moving into my new house soon and will be going for a Sky+ setup.

    What I want is this:

    Sky+ in the main living room (connected to 50" Pioneer Plasma)
    Sky in the family room (connected to 42" Toshiba Rear Projection)
    Sky in one or two of the upstairs bedrooms


    In the living room and the family room, the channels need to be changeable, so I'll need multiroom. In the bedrooms, I presume I should go with those magic eye thingys?

    The family room and one of the upstairs bedrooms don't currently have TV aerials, and we'll need to get aerials fitted in those rooms.


    Whats the best way for me to get everything installed and up and running?

    My dad currently has Sky in our current house, its just a dish and a normal Sky box, we have the full package for £42 a month I think. Premiership Plus on top of that.

    We will be looking to cancel this contract, and start a new one under my name at the new house - so I'm gonna be paying. :eek:

    good thing about new contract and different name is good prices.

    i think the sky+ box is only £99 for new customers (i could be wrong)

    best bet is get a local sat/aerial man to run aerial into loft Sky+ RF outputin to loft, second Sky box RF into loft and mux with aerial feed to all rooms then run RF2 of Sky+ to one bedroom with eye and same for second box to other bedroom with eye..... then all you have to sort is the feeds for the sky boxes... simple..
