      Question about upgrading Sky box: Advice needed.

      Hello,
      At the moment we currently have a Sky+ HD box downstairs with the HD package etc. and a multiroom subscription upstairs with the old Sky+ box. We were looking to upgrade the box upstairs to a HD box too but I wanted to ask a few questions first:
      1) If I were to buy a HD box off eBay as they seem to be a great deal cheaper than buying directly from Sky or another local company, how would I go about fitting it? Would it just be a case of swapping the cables with the current Sky+ box?
      2) Would the cost of the multiroom subscription increase if it is connected to a Sky HD box?

      Thanks guys

      Very simple swap just remove the old Sky+ and fit the new HD.

      If you want HD, you will have to pay another 10 per month for the second HD receiver, multiroom will stay the same price so that will now be 10 for multiroom and 10 for 2nd HD sub.
