    I have sky installed in my living room, but would like to view it in my bedroom and study without installing a new sky box in each room. I know it is possible, but need to know how.

    1. What kind of cabling do I need?

    2. What kind of equipment / gadgets do I need in order to change channels?

    3. Where can I get the equipent from and how much does it cost?

    If there are existing threads on this topic, would someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction?

    Thanks

    I assume you would be happy to watch the same program in the second location as the first? The only way to watch more than one channel is to have more than one digibox.

    So same channel in two locations.

    1. Straight forward TV coax from the RF socket to a second TV.
    2. TVlink style device, connects to RF2 and carries a small voltage to enable the digibox to be controlled from another location. Alternative is a video sender device, wireless so no cables and has stereo audio unlike the TVlink which is mono.
    3. Direct from SKY, Argos, online retailers, DIY superstores. Satcure website has some examples and prices.

    If you want to feed the SKY digibox output to more than one location you will be looking at a more advanced and complex RF distribution system, not upto speed on the technical ins and outs of that sort of system.
    There will be some posters here that can help you though:)

    Thanks for that response. The Satcure website is very informative.
