Multiroom cardsharing question - 23-September-2011, 00:57

Hi everyone,

I've been rewiring my house with Cat6 and Satellite connections in every room, so that I can potentially put a receiver wherever I want.

There are 10 rooms, and I've put 2 connections in each room (so there can potentially be a twin-tuner in each room). I'm new to all the satellite stuff but I've been reading around and I've decided to have two dishes - a fixed one for Sky UK, and a motorised one for other satellites. Therefore I have decided to go for the 9x24 multiswitch route.

I understand that I will have problems contolling the 2nd dish's motor through the multiswitch so I have decided to either use a standalone positioner, or connect the multiswitch output to my main receiver via the motor.

That's the basic setup, but I have a question regarding cardsharing... If I put my Sky card in my main receiver, I understand I can set up my main receiver as a server and the other receivers can share the card details by connecting to my main receiver. That's simple enough.

I just wondered:

1) If I get a foreign cardshare (using my motorised dish) on my main receiver, can I use this AND my Sky card together?

2) I understand that if I get a foreign cardshare on my main receiver, I can only share this if I get individual lines from my host, or if I get permission to reshare with my other receivers. My network is set up as follows:

Internet --> Modem --> Router --> Switch --> Devices

My question is... How many hops have I got (minimum, taking into account server side), and will getting a card share over the internet be troublesome?
