      Re: multiroom installation

      afaik Yes.

      However you do know there is an unofficial offer of Sky+ HD for 105 fitted?

      If you wish to try and partake.

      Re: multiroom installation

      by the time you buy a quad band quality lnb and cable length you will probably pay around 50 so for 105 you get hd for main tv and get second box fitted by sky for multiroom

      if you install yourself and you get problems sky will always blame your ownbox or installation problems which are not covered because u self installed

      a telephone line also has to be installed for multiroom which can be a footery complicated affair

      You'll need to fit a quad-output LNB as described here:
