      Sky + cabling query

      I've had a look through previous threads but can't find the answer to the following:

      My parents live in a block of flats with a communal dish serving 9 flats with all 10 connections to the lnb already being used (1 upstairs flat has sky + installed).

      At the moment they have a standard sky box but sky + would be so much easier for them recording their favourite programs etc.

      Is it possible to use the single coax cable & split the signal through a booster before it goes into the box to provide the two feeds required to get full sky + functionality?

      Thanks

      No, Sky + needs two LNBs as it has two tuners, one to record one to watch.
