Hello, New to this site. Received Sky+ box from my son, what do I have to do get it to work on my basic sky package. We still have the Sky+ cable upstairs & single cable downstairs from when he stayed at home.

Re: Sky+ Box
You will need both cables running to the location of the Sky+ box. This will allow you to view one programme whilst recording another (or recording 2 programmes at the same time). If you stick with just one cable you will only be able to record one programme and not watch another live programme at the same time (however you will still be able to play back a programme you have previously recorded wether you have one or two cables).
Then you will need to call Sky and ask (a) for your Viewing Card to be paired with the Sky+ box (b) ask for the full Sky+ functionallity to be enabled BUT this will cost you about an extra £10/month for the full record/playback service.

Re: Sky+ Box
Sky + is free with any sky package, however if you intend to use it upstairs as a second box there will be a £10 multiroom charge. If you intend to replace your current box, then you need a second cable. A local arial installer should be able to install this for you. It is then, insert your viewing card and call Sky to pair it to your box.
To OP you may like to remove your full phone number from your details. An area code is all you need.
