Hi, I have sky plus fitted and my old sky box upstairs. I have just bought a 2nd sky+ box from fleabay. Will I be able to use this by just changing it for my old box (not a sky+ box)

thanks

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Yep, just run another cable from the spare LNB output and have a mirror subscription set up on the second + box and you'll be sorted... :)

Yes, as long as both boxes are connected to the phone line, you will just have to ring Sky and activate the recording facility and pair the card to the box.
