Add Sky+ box to existing set up

Apologies if this has been posted before. We are upgrading from sky+ to sky HD and were thinking of installing the sky+ box in the bedroom. We already have another sky+ box in our sons room. Can I tap off the other bedroom box to feed the sky+ in our room? Any help and explanations would be great. Thanks, Dave.

"Can I tap off the other bedroom box "

Tap what, the lnb input or the box output?

Thanks for your reply. I was hoping to split the incoming signal cables and put two to the existing box in our sons room and two new cables to the sky+ box in our room. Can this be done?

Thanks, Dave.

Nope. You require a OCT LNB at the Dish and run two feeds to the Sky+ box in your Room.
