Is It possible to connect two sky digiboxes together and use the one card to decode channels? using a dual LNB or otherwise. I want to watch sky on two recievers without taking out a second subscription.

any help/advice appreciated

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 23-Mar-02 AT 11:28 AM (GMT) by zansi (moderator)]Certainly by installing a twin LNB you will be able to receive the full range of frequencies and polarities simultaneously on both receivers. The card will not work on all channels on the second receiver though, for it to do this it would need to be married to the unit.

For £12/month Sky will give you a second card with the same package as your first.

(Providing that they are BOTH connected to a active telephone line !) They do check and contact you if either box is disconnected.
