You can split the cable feed using a certain type of splitter BUT you will only be able to recieve channels in the same bank (either Hi/Lo and H/V) that the main reciever is tuned into, this is because single LNB's can only be controlled (tone and voltage) from a single reciever..
If you already have multiroom you may find that you already have a quad LNB but that all the inputs are taken up (are they all Sky+/Sky+HD boxes?) If yes then all 4 ports will be taken up and the only way to wire in another box is to go for an expensive 6 way LNB..
Easiest way of telling is to go outside and look at the LNB.. How many cables does it have going to it and how many spare cable connectors are there..
Remember you need one for a standard sky/hd/freesat box or two for a sky+/HD+/freesat+ box
