      mono sound on lcd upstairs

      I have a tv upstairs which i have connected with rfcable from a sky+hd box, i now have a new lcd tv connected to this cable and have realised that i can only get the sky signal in mono sound and not stereo. This cable also carries the arial signal,and the sound on those analogue channels are in stereo, so why is the sky in Mono?, and has anyone got any suggestion on how i get stereo sound on sky? i don't want a home cinema system in my bedroom needless to say.

      Thanks hopefully

      The Sky box does not have a NICAM sound encoder which is the system that the terrestrial broadcasters use to provide stereo sound.

      You could try a very long SCART cable or a video sender (but that can have other problems with dropouts and interference).
