      Sky+ And Sky Hd Wiring For Multiroom

      I would be eternally grateful for some advice on setting my 2 boxes for multiroom reception.

      1 I have 2 boxes in the same room (Sky plus 160 and Sky HD)
      2 I have a quad LNB attached to my dish
      3 I have feeds from 4 rooms into the loft

      Can anyone advise on the best way to wire this system up, with particular emphasis on the return feed to the loft from the boxes.

      Are there any websites showing wiring diagrams etc?

      Any help appreciated

      Re: Sky+ And Sky Hd Wiring For Multiroom

      Your two boxes have taken up all 4 feeds from your LNB so multiroom is a non starter.
      However if you just want to distribute the Sky signal round the house then the simple way as you already have cabling is a TV Link, there are diagrams on the site for various permutations.

      PS I don't think there is anyway to extend the HD into another room as you would need some sort of HDMI extender, of which I know nothing.

      If you want to have multiroom i.e independent channels and extra Sky boxes then you'll need an Octo LNB.

      Re: Sky+ And Sky Hd Wiring For Multiroom

      I've been looking into this myself. I currently have all the rooms in the house fed from a Sky+ and an HD box (doth in the same room - anyone found how to make the remotes work seperatly?). Currently I'm just using an RF (TV Ariel) feed into my loft to a distribution amp and down into each room. However I'd like to get and HD signal into a few of the rooms.

      Best places for this gear I've found so far are Keene Electronics and Lektropacks - AV specialist, for Cables, Adaptors, Converters, Scalers, Multi-Media and all AV accessories. - I've used both in the past and they've been around for ages.

      Both offer component and HDMI distribution solutions as well as custom cables. The other thing to keep in mind is that HDMI does not like long cable runs and you may need boosters.
