Sending SKY+ to kitchen LCD

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but we're moving into a new house and the setup I want is to have a 42" HDTV with SKY+ (SKYHD in 2006) in the lounge, and with a 17" LCD in the kitchen, and one in the bedroom.

I want the LCD's to also have SKY on them, can I do this using some kind of video sender, and if so what are my best options?

Thanks

Use a videosender - after several attempts using a digisender from Argos, I'm now using a Philips videsender (yes, it came from Curry's) which seems to have better coverage, and beaming pixtures from the ky box around the house. Picture quality is really quite good so long, but there is a world of difference between the 32" Philips 9976 in 1 room and the cheapo 17" lcd in the kitchen, which can't handle contrasts.

Why not just wire them up via the RF outlet. Local ariel company will do this to multiple TVs in the house (with the necessary boosters) and then buy Sky Eye-links to change channels.

Is it safe to put an LCD screen in a kitchen? I thought they could only be installed where the humidity is low.

Local "ariel" company eh. Probably right for the kitchen. After all, Ariel is a brand of washing powder. ;)

LCD's are fine in the kitchen, I have had one with no issues for over a year now. Also many of the large kitchen makers/planners are incorporating drop down lcd's into the design.



Incidently, I am using the RF2 to get the signal around the house. :smashin:
