    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 !!!

    :eek:

    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!!)
