    Hi Its as in the title - How can i get NTL up in the bedroom. I really don't want to spend £120 on Digisender Gold and I have read on other forums that people are having problems with it. Any other suggestions. - Its a PACE box

    I use a Philips video sender. They cost about £70. Works fine most of the time. Some interference from microwaves etc, but generally fine. Perfect picture.

    what model number phillips (can you run cables to bedroom?) what type of TV is in bedroom (not tempted by a second ntl box (£15 PCM) but gets all the channels you get in lounge in bedroom (they install it so no hassle) and you can wacth E4 and Sky one at same time........

    Phillips sender I use is on the Argos web site at £74. I connect the NTL box to the sender via scart, and receiver to TV by scart in the other room. You can add one other device by scart as well. The only big disadvantage with this set up is that you can't change channels etc in the second room, as NTL remotes aren't compatible with the IR of the Philips boxes. Sorry, should have mentioned that in the first place.
