Yes, if both are satellite, it should work no problems.

If the Canberra address has had iQ installed previously and nothing has changed with the dish LNB & multiswitch cabling, then it should be just plug & play.

You shouldn't need to make any setting changes to the decoders at all.

You will receive all channels you currently do.

Under Foxtel T&C you will need to advise them of your change of address and your billing address will remain as it is now until you advise them..... otherwise, they will never know you've moved.

Also, they will find out if the person who moves into your new address wants to get Foxtel - they wont be able to because you are there, then they will chase you down (and if they cant, and the new person can prove they live in your address, they will just disconnect your service)

Might just want to consider that first, unless you know who is moving into your Sydney address
