    Hi All,

    I wish to extend my Sky+ to another room, however the distance I have to cover is approximatelly 30 to 40 metres.

    I can use the RF out from my Sky+ box but my experience is limited in terms of whether the signal strength will be long enough.

    In addition, is it possible to control this second TV by remote in that room 30 to 40 metres away?

    Appreciate any assistance.

    Regards,

    Homer J

    Im guessing here but I think you meant to say strong enough?
    Yes, I think you'll get away with doing it....as long as the cable is one long continuous length with no splitters or connectors.

    Again, I think what you are asking is can you control the Sky box remotely from the other room.........yes if you connect a TV Link eye to the RF2 socket on the digibox.

    JayCee,

    Thanks, appreciate the feedback, and yes you were right, I meant 'Strong' as in signal strength.

    So I assume what you are saying is that the TV cable is plugged into RF1 and run to the second machine and then the TV Link Eye is run into the RF2 socket, that right?

    Regards,

    You realise of course that doing this only sends mono sound and not stereo.

    Still an acceptable solution though if this is not an issue.

    Perhaps better is a video sender which transmits the output from the digibox to a receiver in another room attached to another tv. THis receiver can accept commands from the sat remote and control the digibox from the remote location.

    Ken,

    Thanks, I already have a digisender but quite franly it's shocklingly poor, most likely due to the distance involved (i.e. about 35 meters through 2 walls).

    I wasn't aware that the sounds was mono, as long as the picture quality is better than the digisender I'll be happy.

    Cheers anyway for the post, much appreciated.

    Homer.
