The Sky guy came around this morning and installed the MySky unit as part of the Multiroom package.

He installed a double cable from the dish to the bedroom. I asked him why a double cable? He told me that Sky will be releasing more HD Channels soon - Maybe near future or slightly distant future..

The second cabling from the dish will "apparently" hook into the 2nd tuner spot on the decoder - but will need a firmware update to take advantage of it.

He also cold booted the unit (unpluging just the MySky device) and when it started booting hit "Power - Up - Down - Power" and it put the unit into a Firmware update mode..

Anyone heard of this key combination to do it?
I actually asked him what keys he pressed and he told me straight out - so i guess it isnt harmful to know.

Yup I think the double-cable thing is recent. When we had MySky HDi installed in March it was done without it, but a couple of months back we had Multiroom installed and double cabling was run to that outlet. The cabling is essentially two coax-lengths that are moulded together. The downside is that it makes the cable very rigid and less flexible. The installer left quite a length of it between the wall outlet and Sky decoder, and it is so inflexible that the decoder won't sit straight on the TV cabinet! There is no just winding / bundling the cable up, it's a beast!
