    Hi all,
    I have recently replaced my tv in the loft for a projector and have everything runing through my onkyo 616 then up to the projector via hdmi.

    I have sky tv in the loft via the rf out on the back of the sky box and used to just plug it in to the tv and tune it in but now i have no tv.

    The rf out cable runs to the booster and then to all the rooms in the house and the free view ariel is also plugged in to the booster sending it to all the rooms.

    I there a way of tuning my sky in from the ariel cable to a phono cable apart from getting a second hand video recorder.

    Sorry for the long question i hope someone can help.

    Hi and welcome to the forum.
    Can't you just add the Sky machine to the "everything" that goes through the 616?

    I guessed that "everything runing through my onkyo 616 then up to the projector via hdmi" meant that they were down there too.
    A wireless videosender from Sky Scart Out to Onkyo Phono In or to PJ Phono In might do the job for you.

    An old VCR will be the cheapest route - try your local charity shop, but you can also get stand alone tuners, some with both digital for freeview and analogue for your Sky feed.
