Hi

I have sky hd to my main hd tv in the lounge.I have a smaller HD tv in the kitchen that is fed from the sky hd box through the coax with a magic eye for control,however the picture is terrible so I need to find a way to get a second hdmi connection to the second tv,there is only one hdmi slot in the sky hd box

can i buy a long hdmi lead and a splitter and share the signal,or what can i do? i've heard you can but can only watch one at a time??


many Thanks in advance

I use a neet 1 in 2 out hdmi splitter and a long hdmi lead to feed the tv upstairs from the sky+HD downstairs.

This works perfectly.

So either/both TV can be on and view the sky+HD box and as using a coax and magic eye can control the Sky+HD as well.

OK Stewart, HDMI splitters are notoriously unreliable, especially with Sky machines, and long HDMI cables are hard to get, but digigriffin has been lucky with his setup so you'd better give it a try yourself!
