Fibre1 WiFi Hub

I am considering installing Fibre 1 Broadband. Vodafone tell me that this comes with digital voice and that changes to my telephone system are necessary.  Whilst I can understand how to set this up just for telephone connections and broadband, I am not sure how this will fit in with having to connect a telephone line to my Sky Plus + HD Box at the same time.  Please can anybody advise me how to proceed in this situation.

The Sky+ HD box hasn't needed the telephone connection for many years, at least 10.

What do you think the Sky HD needs the telephone connection for?

Perhaps ask SKY ?

I think those instructions are well outdated. The sky+HD box has a direct internet connection so a phone line isn't needed anymore. Originally the phone line was simply for authenticating and updating the card.

The earlier Sky HD box didn't have the network connection, but the requirement for the phone line was dropped many years ago. (AFAIK)
