My parents live in County Donegal and have a dish with One Old type digibox.

They do not want Subscription, so view Free to air channels with a Card I purchased from Sky.

The LNB is of a single type only.

I am arranging to have the LNB changed to a Multitype so I can have a Digibox in my room and they can have an additional box in the Kitchen.

Will I require a new card for each of the new Digiboxes or can they access channels without one. The TV in the lounge has the main box so we are just looking at getting channels whilst in other rooms.

Also can I purchase a Digibox from B&Q or Lidl and use the existing dish.

Any advice will be appreciated

Thanks for the info.

Basically if I get a Freesat box it will do the job once the new LNB and feeds have been done.

Just a question will the Freesat box work in Irish Republic or are they geographically ID'd to the UK.

What Digibox would you suggest.

Sorry if I sound a bit dim but I just want to get it right.

Thanks for your previous help.

My Dad ran the cable himself in advance, and got his local Aerial supplier to change the LNB and connect up.He also supplied a box (No idea of cost as he wont tell me) Knowing him he got a good rate.

He also ran from the spare outlet to another TV Set.

Anyway I have ordered a card from Sky £20.00 and am waiting for delivery to myself in the UK.

I intend to send it to Ireland so they can insert and get Sky 3, Fiver and the like.

I have been given the Serial Number along with all the other info for when they insert the new card.

Is there anything else I should be aware of when asking Sky to activate the New card.
Ideally I do not want to let it be known that I have sent the card to Ireland.

Once again thanks for your previous help.
