    Does anyone know whether the RF 2 out on Sky Digital feeds a stereo signal to other digiboxes/tv's?

    The reason I ask is if I distribute Sky across the house via a loft box/amplifier will this give me the same image/sound quality as if I was watching on my primary source TV?

    If not, what would be the best way? :confused:

    The RF ouputs are both mono I'm afraid. :thumbsdow

    The quality of the RF outputs will never be as good as the output from the scart sockets (RGB or composite) but the quality is perfectly acceptable for feeding other sets throughout the house (portables etc.)


    Cheers,

    Remodulated RF feeds are never stereo. There is no technical real reason why not just the expence of the kit required to do it.

    The best alternative would be to use a wireless video extender as these do often carry stereo signals. Or you could try cable extenders eg: Keene do a video to CAT5 (computer cable) converter which allows you to run longer distances.
