Setting Up Freesat In 2nd. Room.

I currently have an analogue tv with a Sky digibox (eBay) and a £20 Sky viewing card. I have a cable from the digibox going to a small HD ready tv in the bedroom. There is a TV Link connected between the cable from the digibox and the small tv with a sensor on top of the tv. This set up allows me to watch digital tv (same channel as main tv) or analogue in the bedroom.

I am now contemplating buying a Panasonic TX37LZD81 LCD TV which has Freesat built in.

My question is: Will I still be able to transfer the signal from the new Panasonic to the small tv in the bedroom using the existing cabling, TV Link and sensor?

Twin or quad LNB and additional cabling.

They're on about swapping the LNB at the end of the satalite dish to one of these Quad LNB around £10-30

Then run cable from that to where you want it, the freesat TV and the digibox. You cant split the cable like you could with Freeview.
