      re: 2 sky+ boxes, 1 card?

      You cannot move cards between boxes, they are paired to the box so will only work on that onw without calling Sky.

      You can get a second multiroom card form Sky for 10 per month which will receive all the same channels that you already pay for.

      You will need to have both boxes connected to the telephone line though if you do this.

      Yes, you can have as many as you want, 10 each per month.

      If you have 2 x Sky+ already then you will need an Octo LNB, as you need a minimum of 5 connections for 2x Sky+ and 1 standard. The Octo will give you 8.

      Have a look on e-bay.
