      Hello and welcome to SkyUser.

      Can we just clarify whether or not you are on about the TV or Broadband box?

      Sorry, i am on about the sky box but would this affect my broadband if i were to move i too my room and not plug in a active telephone line, i do have a phone line upstairs though, but im not wanting an extension running round the house unless really really needed.

      Re: Moving Box Help

      To move your Sky TV box, would mean that some cables would have to be relaid as well.

      If you have a standard box, this would have one cable from the dish, Sky+ or Sky+ HD would have two from the dish.

      If you do move the Sky TV box to the bedroom, theoretically it shouldn't affect your Broadband afaik.

      Hope that helps.

      Re: Moving Box Help

      Theoretically yes!

      You don't say how long you have had the box. If over 12 months I don't think that you would be required to have that box in the telephone socket.

      Either way, it should still not affect the Broadband side of things. That doesn't come down the satellite cable / dish. (Just in case you thought it did)

      Re: Moving Box Help

      Your broadband comes down the telephone line, not via the dish. Its just that when you get Sky fitted as a new customer, normally you have to have the box connected to the phone line for ordering Movies etc.

      If you don't want it downstairs, and are confident to move the cables, then just don't plug the Sky TV box back into the phone upstairs.
