All depends on how many outputs your lnb on end of your dish has.
Why not just buy this http://www.amazon.co.uk/SLx-Magic-E..._1?ie=UTF8&qid=1339499735&sr=8-1 you can then have your sky upstairs aswell as downstairs, but you will have to watch upstairs what ever is on sky downstairs, and vice versa

As willo says it depends on if you have an output upstairs to the satelite dish.
