    I have sky downstairs connected to a freeview equipped tv.

    I have a single coax cable running up to the loft and down into the bedroom tv with tvlink connected.

    This gives me sky upstairs with no issues.

    In the loft I now have two aerial connections doing nothing.

    Can I use any sort of device so I can get freeview on the TV downstairs and normal analogue tv upstairs whilst still maintaing th sky tvlink connection, and all with the single coax from downstairs to the loft ?

    Thanks.

    For Freeview buy a box for the upstairs TV - easiest and cheapest answer

    I appreciate the quick response, and that would be the easiest way....

    however the likely scenario is that the wife will want to watch sky+ upstairs ( whatever garbage shes taped ), and I will want to watch a different channel downstairs, which would normally be anything available on freeview ( i.e. no sky sports or movies required ).

    So ideally I want to be able to feed downstairs from an aerial whilst a feed from the sky goes upstairs along the same cable..... I guess I know the answer already is to start laying some more cable !!!
