I hadn't forgotten about this. It seems that the only solution would be to run an extension from the bedroom socket to the lounge to give the double points necessary. All a bit of a pain I know. Apparently to upgrade the flats for sky+ the bill was of the order of 17k. I am not a technical bod but i guess sky+ needs two feeds one for the one you watch and one for the one you record. If you never get the situation where there is a clash of programs and litterly just want to use the sky+ for its recording capability then I cant see why techinically it shouldnt work with just one, you just cant watch one channel while recording the other. I guess it depends on what feature of the sky+ is more important to you. If I find out any more info I will pass it on.
All the best
