      I can't see any reason why you can't.

      I would suggest that you give it a try and see what happens.

      Essentially the network port on the back of the Sky+ HD STBs is just another network port. This is the same for your games machines.

      They all have specific requirements for the type of traffic which they demand, but ultimately they are the to connect to your home network.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB

      Your Profile says you are not with Sky broadband so you will not receive Anytime+. If it is incorrect, please update your Profile by clicking the User CP link on the menu bar.

      The device you have will do the job perfectly, if you qualify for it.
