      Using Card from +box elsewhere & phone line

      I am just about to buy a second hand sky+ box to replace my existing bog standard box. The Husband knows what to do with regards to changing the lnb/cable, etc, and I know that I will need to contact Sky to get my existing card paired with the box. I have two questions -

      1) Do I need to keep the phone line connected once the sky+ box is in? We disconnected it when we decorated and never got round to putting it back. I know it's not necessary for the bog standard box unless you want to use box office, etc.

      2) I plan to use the existing bog standard box elsewhere. Once the card is paired with the sky+ box, will it still work in the bog standard box?

      Many thanks.

      Debbie

      The card will only work in the receiver it is paired with so it will not work with the current receiver once you have paired it to the new Sky+.

      You do not need the phone line connecting uness you decide to get a second card on the multiroom package deal, then both the receivers will need to be connected to phone lines.
