      Sky Anytime plus using two routers

      Hi all

      I hope you can help.

      I have just joined sky on the unlimited broadband package. I have two sky hd boxes. I start next Monday but want to get set up as quickly as possible.

      My sky router and only available telephone line is next to where I have my multi room box. I can therefore connect via Ethernet easily.

      In an ideal world, I want Anytime plus on the main tv not the multi room one.

      What can I do ? A long Ethernet cable will not be practical.

      Is there any way I can use my Bt Home Hub 2 as a way of getting the signal to the main telly and plug in via Ethernet ?

      Can I have the router plugged in to two hd boxes and get anytime plus on both ?

      Help would be much appreciated.

      You can connect the HH2 to the Sky router, but only by ethernet, which rather defeats the purpose. Your best bet would be a wireless adapter such as this - Netgear Universal Wifi Internet Adapter: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories or homeplug network. Solwise 85Mbps Homeplug Adapter - Twin Pack: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics
      For speed and stability I would recommend the latter.

      Several members have reported that 2 boxes can be connected to Anytime+
