    Hi all,

    I have just moved house and want to be able to watch my sky+ in the bedroom, for which I am going to buy a new LCD/Plasma (was intending on getting integrated freeview) in order to do this I wonder if you can confirm the following:

    To route the signal via a TV link I would have to buy a TV that accepts analogue signal as well as the built in digital?

    The sound via TV link would be mono?

    The only other option is a wireless sender/receiver (other than multi-room, where I wouldn't be able to watch already saved programs)?

    I cannot change channel etc if I just extended the video scart output (which is of poorer PQ anyway?)?

    Any other options?

    Thanks, and sorry for the noob questions.... I did say confirm!

    :thumbsup:

    Three other options
    1 a long lead from VCR socket (together with coax for magic eye for remote control only) - quality is only composite video - similar to using a wireless sender

    2 A lead from the s-video output socket plus a double lead from the audio output sockets (together with coax for magic eye for remote control) - picture quality will be slightly lower than RGB but higher than composite video

    3 An RGB splitter with scart lead to TV and long scart lead to bedroom (together with coax for remote control) - best quality but most expensive.

    thanks davemurgatroyd2, just what I needed to know, now where is that drill......!

    As I have to use the coax in all instances I'll start there.

    Cheers!
