hi i have sky + but recently we have purchased a hd tv and are think of getting a sky hd box does anyone know what they will do when they install it is it just a straight swop or will they need to add cables etc? wondering how much hassle it would be. also we have multi room but only want one hd box and leave the other as standard sky is this ok? thank you

straight change over is ur multiroom box a standard box or a plus box
#2
As above - if you want your multiroom box left as a digibox they'll do that, however you're paying the extra £10 a month for multiroom so you may as well upgrade this to your old SKY+ box for no extra charge?

thats what i was gona say lol

yeah i want to change the sky + box for the hd box but i only want it if it is a sraight swop no adding new cables coz it is upstairs and would be hassle to move everything.
#5
so then i could ask them to move the sky + box to where the normal digi box is for no extra charge?

The " normal " Sky Receiver will only have one cable feed, it will require another one to function fully.

yep i had it done make sure you ask for the sky plus exchange on ur normal box when you phone them as they wont do it and try and charge you

Yep, you'll have a quad LNB anyway, so they'll need to run in another cable to the room.

Yep.

Just to elaborate:

Sky digiboxes just need 1 satellite feed. Sky+/HD needs 2 for full functionality (it can be run on one but you're restricted to only being able to record what you're currently watching).

thanks for all your help sounds quite simple then.
