My parents are thinking of getting sky in to replace the cable.

I currently have a sky digibox in my room that i have just canceled so im on FTA stuff only, what we are wanting to do is have 1 box in the lounge and one in another bedroom on top of the one i have in my room( this will make 3 in total). The one in the lounge to be the main box and the other two to be mirror subs at 10 each, is this possible with one dish?

If not and another dish was installed would sky let my class two boxes as a mirror sub or not as one box will have its own dish.

You can run 4 sky boxes from one dish, or 2 sky+ boxes, or 1 sky+ and 2 sky boxes but you will need a quad LNB and if you are having standard sky boxes then you will have to buy this yourself.

There is a new octo LNB from Telves. This has as you might guess 8 ports. So you could run upto eight digi boxes from it or 4 Sky+s.
