    Hi

    I have SKY+ in my lounge and now want to take it into my home cinema room.
    What is the best and most cost effective way to do this?
    Bearing in mind that it will appear on an 8ft projection screen.

    I have heard about the KAT system and video senders etc.
    What about running coax from the second output of the box? Will this carry audio as well?

    Cheers

    I also have sky+

    I run in a separate feed using one of the spare LNB outputs to my cinema room. I know its not ideal but then whenever I want to watch a movie I just unplug the box and take it upstairs and plug the one LNB feed in. I use the s-video input into my Rock pro and the optical into my Lexicon. I could run in a second lead from the last LNB feed which will allow it to record at the same time but I havent had the time just lately.
    I am also thinking about getting a second sky+ box with a mirror subscription and just having that in there.

    Hope this helps
