    I'm thinking about aborting Sky and Installing Freeview In the Living room, As the Sky coax is already in place can i simply use it for the Freeview ?

    Not sure if it's different in the impedience, i think its just shielded coax.

    Yes. Same stuff, but with slightly better shielding.

    (You do know you need to connect it to an aerial, not a dish? Sorry if this seems condescending, but I've seen some very unusual suppositions on this forum from time to time).

    Ha , Cheers Nigel! I'm aware of that! Thanx for the info, that has made my mind up then. Ive got a pioneer freeview box upstairs which is ok apart from the ridiculous green/red light on the front...I think i'll buy a Sony one for downstairs!.They seem to be the highest rated box.

    Thanks for the reply Nigel. :thumbsup:
