      Changing over to sky+, easy?

      Hi, i have been given a sky+ box by a friend who has upgraded to hd. I currently have standard sky on the full package, is it as easy as buying a compatible lnb, running a new cable from the lnb to the box and asking sky to change me to sky+. Or am i barking up the wrong tree?

      pretty much, just swap lnbs over (ensuring you dont misalign the dish as the new lnb and 2 cables is heavier), connect up the new box then ring sky and ask them to marry up the viewing card to the box and activate sky+ on your account.
