    I'm having SKY+ installed soon.

    The original SKY installation was a pain as I live in an old building and the co-ax from the LNB to the box needs to be run through several cavaties.

    Does SKY+ need two coax wires, or does it just re-use the exisiting one??

    Thanks in Advance

    It will need two, to the two tuners. When I had the installation done the old cable was abandoned and a new double cable routed through.

    How much effort will sky go to.

    It would need to go throught the loft (easy), behind two cavity walls (external wall 2 ft thick), under floorboards and then through conduit.

    Will they take this amount of work on for nothing??

    TIA

    The don't do two runs, only an additional run.

    Did they install the first one? Even if they didn't you could say that they did, and they should do it again. ;)
