Just signed up to BT. But no scart av out or rf out. Wanting to watch TV upstairs and change channels with a magic eye from up there with remote. Got a triax rf modulator but with box having no scart out I can't use it. Is there anyway of getting a box to work upstairs. Can I split the hdmi signal? Please help!!!!

Yes, you can split the HDMI and you can also get HDTV RF modulators - although they do cost! I guess you are probably looking at an HDMI - scart converter? In which case you might need a splitter that can "assist" you with HDCP copy protection issues. Depending upon the converter, you may also find that plugging it in forces the output of the BT box to a lower resolution.

Yes getting a hdmi splitter that supports hdcp. Splitting the main supply then one into main TV then the othe into a scart coverter which then goes to a triaxial rf modulator then onto a coax which feeds a magic eye. Is this right how I'm doing it or is there an easier way?

'Is this right how I'm doing it or is there an easier way?' - unlikely an 'easier' way but you may want to consider HDMI over RF (if your TV's have suitable tuners) as that is going to deliver a better image in your secondary Zones.

HDMI - you add an HDMI>RF Modulator to one Output of the Splitter and then tune the TV to the Modular or Add a compatible Receiver at the TV.

Control - IR over RF is possible though can be patchy, you may have to add a suitable Harmony remote or consider App control.
