    Ask your line supplier if your line allows multiple feeds. Quite a few now allow up to 4 boxes on the same Internet to use the one line.

    Best ask your line provider

    Ask your line provider what they allow.

    some providers will allow multiroom...others prefer one line per box so speak to your current provider.
    2nd dish? use a multi lnb & run lines from dish to both boxes

    Why not install dream player on an android tablet & then they can watch a different channel to you via the one box?

    Not sure if dream player is going to get me where i need to go, at the moment my son downloads on a sly box to watch at his leisure, I dont think I can find a solution to match this, best I can think of is a zgemma with an hdd to record the tv to watch at a later date, dream player will aloow him to watch on the main zgemma but will interfere with our viewing and recording.

    go buy another box then! you do know that you can stream the recordings from your zgemmas hdd to the likes of an android box leaving your two tuners free for watching and recording! so just record a load of pokemon on hdd and stream it save yourself a few bucks if money is the issue. no running wires or anything like that.

    Or get an Amazon firestick and load kodi and dream player and he can stream Pokemon all day and night via the internet and watch live tv through the kodi or dream player apps.

    So you want to buy a second box and won't buy a second line?
    you could buy of someone cheaper
