    You'll need a twin feed for the box upstairs too, but then it should would

    Not to my knowledge - your Multiroom gives you the same subscription level as your main box

    I would have thought you would need a new Sky card to take advantage of the Sky+ features in the extra box you buy.

    You will also need extra cable run from the dish to the new Sky box.

    But the existing box will alredy have a card - just call Sky to pair the box and the card.

    already mentioned about the need for a twin feed :thumbsup:

    thanks bassman repped

    seriously, unless you're getting sky box complely free - you'd be better off phoning sky and asking for a multi-room offers. they *may* give you a free sky+ box, if you upgrade your main home box to sky hd, then you'll have a sky+ box to move about the place anyway.

    This does cost £10.00 per month - but it means you have 2 sky sources.

    If you already have multiroom both will work as sky+
