Connecting Sky dish!


Recommended Posts

You can have it in another room but you just have to watch the same channel as what the other room is playing.....eg you could connect it to your tv upstairs so you could watch something in bed. Just need one of those 'magic eyes'.

 

If you want to watch two separate channels at the same time you will have to pay for multiroom ;)

Thank you! That's a big help, does anyone know how much it would cost to do it, and anyone know anyone that could?

If you don't mind a wire running from room 1 to room 2 just run some co-ax from the second RF out on the sky box then turn it on in engineer settings list. If you want to be able to turn the sky over from the second set you need a TV link, one with a wire is cheaper, again it uses a co-ax wire for the signal only this time it has a magic eye bit to send the remote control signal to the box. If you don't want a wire in the way either buy a wireless remote sender kit or get an engineer out who will run the wire's outside the house for you.

Thank you, but we're not confident enough to do all that..:)

If you have a little spare cash getting an engineer is much tidier than DIY, if your having it installed you could buy a second box second hand and use it for freeview that way the TV's would show different channels.

If your spending enough to do that you would probably be spending enough to get multiroom from Sky themselves which is tidier still and you get the extra box. If your an existing customer and this is your first multiroom it will cost just under £130 fitted, that includes the box, and after a year you can downgrade to freeview on the second box.
