    when my sky+ was installed the installer dude had to phone sky up to pair the card to the box then it took like 2mins and I had Sky movies, guessing the same is true for your case

    You need a multiroom subscription which gives you an extra card which is a mirror of your main one. It costs £10 a month, but both boxes will need to be connected to the same phone line, and Sky are very strict on this.

    yeah i did order the multiroom subscription, but i only got a normal sky upstairs, and then when i plugged my old sky+ box, i would not show my premium channels? however i could record and pause freeview stuff on my old sky+ box, but not premium.

    Have i got to pay another tenner on top for this, as i cannot put in my new sub card into old sky+ box "card does not match set top box" or sommit like that on screen:mad: :mad:
