Run out of ideas with my Triax Modulator

Hopefully yes, so long as you are getting 4k on your main tv and picture on the other TVs with sound then good to go. Do you have hdr enabled as well?

Just set mine up... swapped out the old Humax Foxsat-HDR and Triax Tri-link for the Humax HDR 1100S and Triax 103T.
The 103T screen showed 1080i on power up and I've touched no buttons on it.
HDMI from Humax to 103T, RF out of 103T (9v RF out but switched to OFF in case loft amp has 9v power - it did) to wall plate connected to uplink feed on Labgear 8 way amp in loft. HDMI loop through from 103T to local TV next to it.
IR emitter from 103T to front of Humax.
Two remote TVs with magic eyes in other rooms, their aerial sockets connected to wall plates from amp in loft. Three Humax remote controls.
All worked immediately.
Even the Sony KDL-32WE613 HD Ready set accepted the modulated RF feed when I thought it may need a full HD tuner for it to work (or the addition of a set top box).
Question... If I add a freeview aerial to the 103T RF in and then search for digital Freeview channels will these overwrite my Humax/103T channel? If so, what do I do? Adding Freeview would give a watcher three alternatives, Freesat or Humax recordings, Freeview, App TV.

Thank you for your help , it was much appreciated.

I have a 4K on the main tv and good picture on the secondary tvs, i do think when i am watching sport it seems a laggy but no one else sees it so might be my eyes.

The sound work fine on all tv and not changed any settings.

I think i have hdr enabled but how would i double check?

In the Sky Q picture settings options it should give you 2 options for 4K with one being 10bit from memory. The 10bit is required to enable Sky Q to output HDR when it is present on the program\film.

Laggy on the second TV or main one? The main one will be just pass through so if it is that one then it might be your eyes or one of the picture processing modes, switch any motion processing.

Agree with @Jamie don’t think they are any 4k on the market as you can’t afaik get 4k over UHF yet.

Try that splitter mentioned or something like this one Amazon product
That should work nicely. I have hdfury too but it’s probably overkill in this case.

Just watch the sound output
Would that run over coax or only hdmi? I only have coax run, as the house has just been redecorated and the Mrs would go crazy with more cables!😝👍

To preserve a 4K signal on the lounge TV, you'd locate both the HDMI splitter and modulator in the lounge.

The connections would be...
  1. Sky Q to splitter via HDMI
  2. Splitter to lounge TV & modulator, each via HDMI
  3. Modulator to upstairs TV (or distribution amp in the loft if feeding more than one TV) via coax
