      sky multi room in a flat with a shared dish

      Hi,

      i am about to move into a new flat and there is a prewired dish with a faceplate in the wall that has sat 1 and sat 2 on it. This was explained to me to enable sky plus. My question is that i am not overly fussed about sky plus so would the fact there are 2 sat sockets eman i could run 2 sky boxes and thus have sky multi room???




      cheers peeps

      Only one of them would be able to view all your subscribed channels (the one with your card). The other (without your card) would only be able to view the freesat channels or, if you bought a 20 card from Sky, the free-to-view channels.

      Yes you can have multiroom providing you connect both STB's to the phone. If your wall socket has a Return to the bedroom, just connect the Sat 2 input to the return and then you should be able to get the satellite signal into the bedroom. This won't work if the return goes to an amplifier, but you can just make a connection to bypass the amp.
