Any one know if it is possible to buy a sky decoder so that we only need take our card to our holiday place rather than the whole box?

Sky don't sell decoders.

Your most realistic option is a Dreambox but you'll have to go down a steep learning curve configuring it if you've never used one before.

if you're prepared to pay $25 a month for multi room and put it at the other place...

but it would technically be a breach of their T&C's

Have you spoken to Sky about this?
They must have some sort of deal for a second or third decoder without cards.
I was at a holiday house yesterday installing a new TV and they had two Sky decoders there but no cards as they bring the cards from home when staying there.

I rang them but the woman said they dont sell them but that I could use multi room. I might try again and be a bit more specific.
