    ok that post makes very little sense to me... do you want to run sky and analogue TV to a bedroom TV?

    yes but I have taken the loopthrough out of the sky decoder because that was the only way I could get a very good sky picture via the 4 way loft splitter to the bedroom tv but have lost bbc,itv,4 and 5

    try changing SKY RF output channel then reconnect aerial feed, find a nice clean RF channel one miles from what your aerial picks up and it should give a clean Sky pick as well as analogue TV

    tried this on every channel one weekend but found the only way was to take the loopthrough out to get the best picture

    so connect aerial to Sky STB and feeding distribution block with RF2 output of Sky STB meant 1-5 was OK but sky was fuzzy?
