This all depends on what you mean by "Sky Digital in the house and garage".

Do you want to have multiple Sky STBs, or the signal from a singler STB in two locations?

For Sky or freeview you don't need a special LNB any more, and if you want multiple STBs an appropriate splitter will suffice.

Ok so you just need an RF splitter, but it means you can only watch the same program in both locations.
