    Hi Guys

    I am getting Sky+ installed next week in a new room which has been converted for home cinema use. However, i would really to receive sky in my lounge where I have it today but only need the one box as i dont need different channels on each TV.

    So my question is this, what is the best way to connect this up? Woudl a radio wave TV link be sufficient or am I best to get it professionally wired up?

    Also, what is sky eye? Is this a radio wave link or just a way to change channels over a wired up link?

    Thanks in advance

    Kris

    I used to use a philips video sender. As far as I could tell the quality was very good, and almost as close as the original box. With the IR transmitter included it was very good with remote controls.

    But when I upgraded my wireless network to 54g it caused problems with the video sender. Basically I couldn't get all my 11b devices to work with all my 54g devices at the same time as having a completely clean signal from the video sender. And this was after a *seriously* long time of mucking around with different channels on the devices (router has 10+, sender has 4).

    So overall very good, but perhaps not quite as good as a physical link, and maybe a problem if you have a wireless network (it worked fine with my old 11b network). Get it from Argos (£50 at the minute apparently) and you can take it back for a no quibble refund if you have any problems or just don't like the picture.

    Cheers
