    I already have sky installed - it was an electrician friend of mine that said a matrix switch can be added to your sky box, and then wired up to allow viewing of sky in all rooms of the house, whilst also allowing the watching of different channels.

    you can do this, have a sky box in every room (up to four of a Quad LNB no need for a MArtix switch) but every box needs a card............................

    IF you want to go above 4 sky boxes then you need a IRS Switch which will give Sky, FM, UHF and DAB at all locations throughout the house.

    Watch out for the sky subs mounting up though!

    As HD says it is the only way to watch multiple channels at the same time from Sky.

    Same channel throughout the house is easier, using a Loftbox which will share the UHF output from the SKy receiver.
