    I was just enquiring about a thought I had and would it be viable in anyway. My idea was to replace the single LNB on my existing box with a quad LNB and then run one line to my existing box, which then leaves me three of lines left.

    Is it possible to run them into a capture card and setup a Sky+ copy box and still receive the full range of channels as my sky box receives now. with the spare 4th signal run it into a seperate room and watch a different sky channel there. Acting like multiroom but how would I get the same range of channels. In a sense having to 'duplicate' my sky card in the existing box.

    It probably doesnt quite make sense what Im saying but any help would much be appreciated.

    You can't receive Sky on anything other than a Sky or Sky+ box. Sounds like you need Sky multi-room, where you buy an extra Sky or Sky+ box, and get a second card which mirrors the channels you get on the first box. The multi-room package will cost you an extra £10 a month.

    You can't legally duplicate a Sky card.
