We had sky+ installed over a year ago into the kids room, and have since changed the box there to a std one. What i would like to do now is take one of the two aerial feeds through to another room for a 3rd sky box. Is there a way i can do this and avoid paying sky any extra money!?

simply, No. To operate another Sky Box you need another multiroom sub to change channels independently, you could take a feed off one of the other boxes but you'd have to watch the same

maybe you didnt catch me, there was a + box in the room before, 2 aerial feeds, now its a std box so uses only one feed. I should be able to extend the 2nd now unused feed to another room into another box right?

Yes you will. I think curtlyb was commenting on the upcoming problem of how do you manage to view channels on your other box without another sky card for it?

Unless you are just planning on watching free to air channels or getting a freesat card from sky.

You can join it easily enough. You will lose some signal quality but as long as it isn't low to start with. Most elegant solution would be to just unscrew the unused cable from the LNB on the dish and run a new cable to the other room.
