My dilemma - I want Sky tv on my Pj

My problem - my HC room is miles away from the lounge. I have tried the rf route but with poor results.

Being too cheap and nasty to buy a mirror subscription to sky & hearing of the less than satisfactory results of video senders I have thought of the long cable route.

Only, I don't know if the following can be done.

Basically, it would require scart to s-video.

But it would need to be about 20 meters long !!!


Any ideas?

Or are there any gadgets on the market which would be better?

Sorry if I'm pointing out the obvious but presumably you know that you will need a convertor of some sorts to do this as Sky digiboxes don't output S-Video?? (unless you have Sky+ of course in which case ignore everything I just said!!)

Thanks for the help guys. Will give Lek's a tinkle.
I would be interested to know what solution you get as I hve a similar problem but only 10m.

satcure has some things but they don't custom make cables.
