      Sky Plus in 2 rooms (same cable as normal box)

      Hi

      Looking to invest in a Sky Plus box but need it to be used in next door room (ok to only receive one channel on both though)

      Have heard that the Sky Plus uses both Aerial sockets? Is this the case?

      If so is it easy to set up to next door room?

      thanks

      I've read you question a couple of times and I'm not sure what you are trying to do.

      I think this is what you need to know:-

      If you install the Sky+ receiver in one room you can link it to another room (or as many as you like) via the RF2 out. You will have to watch the same Sky channel on both TV's or a mix of terrestial and Sky. you cannot watch two seperate Sky channels.

      You ccan also fit a magic eye in the other room to enable you to switch Sky channels from in there.

      The Sky+ will require two feeds from the LNB (dish) this may be where the confusion is coming from.
