Replace Old Digibox

Hi all,

I have a sky plus HD box downstairs and an old PACE digibox upstairs (multi room). The old pace box has been stuck in standby for two days now and I have tried all the tricks metioned on the forum but still not working.

I would like to know if I bought a new digibox from sky could I just then plug it into the same place as the old one ie, use the same cables and card and use it without having an engineer come out to install it?

 

Thanks.

Go to the sky shop here to see what offers are available,sometimes there is a self install option.

Yes you can swap the box over it wiil come with instructions also you will have to phone sky to have your card paired with the new box.

If you were to purchase a HD+ box then to do two things at ove with it like recording two channels at once or recording one channel while watching another you would need a second cable installed from your dish.
