      [Multiroom] A little naughty but...

      We currently have one of the old 320GB Pace Sky+ HD boxes as our main box and a white non-HD Sky+ box as our multiroom box. We have wanted a 2TB box for a while but could never get a cheap offer. Now we are looking to move the multiroom box to another room. If we ugrade the white box to a 2TB box for 149 plus 60 installation would the engineer install the new box in a different room to the original box? Alternatively (and this is the naughty bit), if we order a new multiroom connection for 49 plus 60 installation with a minimum contract term of 12 months, would we be able to cancel the old multiroom subscription within that period if we find we aren't getting value for money from having 3 boxes? A technical question, can you have 3 Sky+ connections? My current LNB only has 4 outputs, all of which are in use

      Don't see any reason why you shouldn't cancel a multiroom subscription that is outside the minimum contract period even if you have a new multiscreen contract.

      An upgrade from Sky+ to Sky+ HD would normally be offered as a self install but if you are willing to pay for an engineer visit then within reason the engineer will install the Sky box wherever you want it.

      Octo LNBs (8 outlets) are available and the engineer should carry at least one. To be sure he still has one when he arrives for your install put an engineers note on the order stating that an octo LNB will be required.
