    Using second Sky card in Spain

    Our son has moved to Spain. In Dublin we have subscriptions (including Sports package) for 2 Sky cards - 1 in Sky+ box downstairs and 1 in regular box upstairs. If we send the 2nd card and the regular box to him in Spain what options would that give him? Thanks.

    Hi and welcome,
    The channels available to him will depend on his dish size. And the dish size depends where he is in Spain. Many channels are available on an 80cm dish, others require a 2.4m dish and even then on a big dish not all will be available all day.
    Also, be aware that if your cards are set as part of a sky multiroom agreement, then normally sky require all cards within that contract to be connected to a UK phoneline, so that they know that the discounted card is being used at the correct address. A few months of missed callbacks from the boxes to Sky and the discounted card will be charged at the full correct rate.

    Have the sky box and the card connected with cable from a shared rooftop satellite dish, but getting the message "no satellite signal being received." Is there something we're missing?

    A few suggestions:
    Are you sure the dish you have connected to is pointing tothe UK TV satellites?
    You may have to help the box boot up by asking it to download its data from another frequency - ie changing the default transponder frequency -
