    I would like some advice on how to connect Sky digital to both a projector and television as I only want to use the projector for movies and sport (via sky and DVD), the rest of the time I will be watching sky through the TV...is this possible without buying another Sky box??? This may be a long shot too but I would also maybe like my Xbox connecting to both TV and projector. Thanks.

    Thanks for that, very helpful (being the novice that I am)...just out of interest do you have any idea as to how much it generally costs to get a guy in to sort the wiring on a home install? Is that like asking how long a piece of string is???

    ...between York and Hull. I am having the room built on my house in around six weeks. Money is the object but hopefully if I can buy my projector from the states (at half the price of over here, saving £800 approx.) I will have enough of my budget to get it sorted.

    dont know any body up there but a good sparky with instruction could do it or have a look at Cedia members in your area.
