One card - Two Digi Boxes (1 at a time)?

I have two digiboxes in different rooms and I want to be able to watch sky in both rooms. I don't want to watch sky in both at the same time (I can only be in one room at a time), but I wish to be able to swap the card from one digibox to another as I please. I don't want to just use one box and link it to the other TV via a coax cable as the picture is crap and you loose stereo.

Is there any way in fooling my 2nd digibox into thinking its got the ID of my main box? The 2nd box is a Pace.

Cheers

Jem

I don't think that there is any way that a card can be paired to two boxes, so that only leaves the changing of box serial number to be considered. I'm sure that it may be technically possible, but probably not without pretty expert knowledge and equipment.

You are of course aware that several encrypted channels seem to fall outside the security pairing and will operate on any box with any card.
