      Question Sky+ shared dish

      Hi all,

      I've searched the forum and other places online with this question but not found an aswer yet...

      I had Sky+ installed today. I live in a block of flats with a communal dish, so I only have one input into the Sky+ box. I understand that this means I can't record one channel while watching another, as two inputs are needed.

      I have another satelite plug in the bedroom (assumedly to support multiroom?), is there any way I can use this to provide data to the second input on the box? If so, is a wireless solution to this possible?

      Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

      Dave

      You will need to run in a long lead from the bedroom to the satellite receiver (assuming it is a working point).

      It would be worth connecting your receiver to it frist to check it is working.
