    I have just purchased a Samsung 32" LCD display for our bedroom. The Sky+ box is in the sitting room, connected to our Plasma TV and connection to the bedroom TV is via the second RF output and hence coax with a TVlink for switching the Sky box functions. Though the picture is as good as to be expected with a coax RF input, is there an alternative means to connecting to the LCD display to obtain an even better picture, say through some form of converter box to get the connection into RGB scart. Any ideas?

    Has the Samsung got an s-video input? If so, you could try running a svideo cable from the Sky box instead - keep the coax feed for the TVLink to work.

    The Samsung does have an S-video input. That may be an option, but the cable would have to be quite long. About 30 to 40 feet from room to room. Any problems with signal degradation over this distance?
