Sky+ and Sky HD

I was wondering if it is possible to run both a Sky+ box and a Sky HD box in the same room ? I know the remote controls for Sky+ and Sky (regular) are different and wondered if HD boxes were different to Sky+.

Don't even know if Sky allow a user to have the two boxes at the same time !

many thanks

I know Sky+ installations are fitted with cabling from the dish capable of delivering the HD video signal.

Sky HD boxes have sky+ functions so not sure why you want 2 boxes in the same room

because I don't want them in two different rooms to be honest but if it can't be done then I'll leave it !

I'm sure you could have 2 in the same room, but sky say multiroom because they dont expect someone to want 2 in one room.

But why do you want both a sky+ box and a sky HD box???? Sky HD offers the recording function same as sky+

The Sky+ box and the Sky HD box both have the same remote codes! I think I did read somewhere that there is a way around it, but generally, bot in the same room, you'll find that one remote controls both!

ok thanks, that answers my question. The reason I wanted both would be to take advantage of HD and have the chance to record more than two channels !

You must have money to burn lol!

I used to find this a little bit of a problem if I had series-linked any programmes that clashed and wanted to watch something else. The best way around the limitations are to use the +1 channels as they do come in useful, but TBH going for an extra box just for that wouldn't be economical.

Yes we are using the +1 channels at the moment when we have more than 2 programmes to record at once - at one point we had 4 we wanted to record, so 2 were done on +1

Good thing is that you can watch a recorded programme while 2 others are recording, even though you cant watch a 3rd channel
