    Currently I have cabling coming out of TV2 out on the the SKY box up to a TV set in bedroom 1 using a tv link to change channels from up there.

    I then split the signal at the tv and currently pipe it into bedroom 3, where i can watch the pictures in there.

    Could I get another tv-link and remote and change channels in bedroom 3?

    If not, what would I need?

    Cheers

    Mick

    No. The TV Link signal can't pass through a splitter. Also the first TV Link will block the 9 volts AND the signal from the second TV Link. You can't "daisy chain" them. What you must use is a two-output amplified splitter. Feed the Digibox to it then feed each output to a TV via a TV Link.

    The amplified splitter (or distribution amplifier) must be a "SkyLink compatible" type. "SkyLink" is the generic term for the various digital remote extenders, TV Link, DigiLink, SLXlink etc.
