Hi there I subscribe to sky + and have a double lnb fitted, could I install another receiver in the bedroom just by adding a splitter and running the cable upstairs in to the bedroom or is there another way to acheive this, and what would be the best method??
many thanks :)

Just change the twin LNB for a quad and run a new cable, the LNBs are pretty cheap on ebay.

CT100, WF100 are two good types, but any cable which is double screened, ideally with copper braid, core and foil will do. :) People like B&Q sell it by the metre, as do Maplin and probably most aerial wholesalers. :)
