      Cabling Help

      hi, my friend lives in a flat which has a sky socket wired into the living room wall. this is where the sky + box and tv is. how would i run a cable from this to the bedroom?

      do not want to use sky eye. i also have a spare sky box. can this be used in the bedroom for basic freeview channels? or if i get a freesat box would this work?

      thanks

      Perhaps the best solution would be to run a coax lead from UHF 2 Out to the bedroom and fit a Magic-eye in the bedroom.

      If you have an outdoor aerial feeding to the Sky+ STB as well as the Satellite feed) then the Freeview signal will also be present in the bedroom, allowing you to view Freeview as well when the Sky+ STB is recording another channel.

      If you want Freesat in the bedroom, then you would need an additional Satellite feed to the bedroom. If you do not have this already, then it may be difficult to arrange if you have a communal dish.
