      Sky receiver

      We've just agreed to upgrade our aging Grundig satellite receiver for a Sky+HD box...and have a Sky+ box in the bedroom with a multiroom lite subscription at 4.85p/c/m

      I was just wondering what will happen to the ageing Grundig receiver?

      Will the Sky engineer run a cable to the other bedroom for freesat usage?

      Not unless you make it worth his while. Sky make nothing from Freesat so will not be willing to help you benefit.
      Have a word with the installer and inquire if 20quid or so coming in his direction would enable him to fit an octo (8 output) LNB rather than the quad he will have to fit, and run the extra cabling. Even if he only fits you an octo and you do the cabling, thats the tricky bit sorted.

      Hmmm 20 sounds fair, I don't know what Saturday installs are like, so I'll give it a go...

      20quid is just a figure off the top of my head. There may be installers here who can give a figure. It needs an octo LNB which the installer may not have with him.
