    Hi

    I need some help.

    I want to be able to distribute all of my video sources to all rooms in my house. And be able to control them from any room.
    I have 2 sky boxes (1 sky multiroom and 1 sky+)
    I also have a telewest box for "other" channels I need.
    I am happy to locate all video source in a single room, and also happy to wire coax all round the house.

    What I need to know, is what my options are.
    I currently have digisenders and wifi, but its pretty rubbish.

    If I coax everything, can I also get internet distributed throughout the house?

    I would say money is no object, but I am aware houw expensive this lot can get.
    I have 2 budgets.
    Under £1000
    or £1000 to £2000

    Depending on what I can get for these, I could be persuaded to go eithe way.

    have a look at
    http://www.tvlink.co.uk/tvlinkplus.htm

    this looks like the cheapest way to distribute an RF signal to several TV's with IR passthrough to non SKY (and SKY) units

    TV-Link IR receivers £12.75 each ex VAT
    TV-Link 4 way amplifier £17.01 each ex VAT
    TV-Link Plus IR emmitter system (2 repeaters) £29.77 each ex VAT

    Run coax cables to each location you have a TV.
    There are numerous wiring examples on the website.

    You will need to run CAT5 cables for your computer network.
