If you buy sky+ can you watch a different channel to the one your recording
?

If so can you change the system some how so you can watch different sky
channels in different rooms, it would be a lot cheaper than having two
subscriptions.

Thanks
Stephen

Yes, you can watch one channel, record another as it has two receivers
in the box.

no you can't change the system to watch different channels in different
rooms, they have a mirror sub for £10 I think which will allow you to
have a standard sky box in another room being indipendant from the sky +
box.

Yes.

No because the box only has one decoder. It can receive two digital
streams from the satellite and (one to record, one to watch live) but it
can only decode one stream at once.
