      Mums house move

      I think I know the answer to this one but I thought I'd check here.

      Mum recently moved from a house to a warden controlled apartment.

      She's found out due to the limitations of the communal dish that only one input is allowed per flat, and she's not allowed her own dish.

      So right now she has sky in the living room but she can't use her multi room sub in the bedroom. Not only that, as she only has one input in the living room she can't record a different channel to the one she is currently viewing.

      What options does mum have to:

      A) have the ability to watch one thing and record another in the living room

      B) have sky TV in the bedroom for when she goes to bed (only her in the apartment)

      Thanks for your help.

      There are single cable solutions for residents living in blocks of flats eg. https://cubecommunications.co.uk/sin...e-routers-scr/ but access is required to the blocks tv distribution system so it would be best for the work to be carried out by the same company who installed the system or who have the ongoing maintenance contract. There is also the matter of cost. If it should prove too difficult, or too expensive, an alternative would be to cancel the multiroom, use single feed mode with the Sky+ HD box and use Now TV for the bedroom TV. This does assume that a broadband connection is available for the Now TV box.

      Yeah I thought about now TV but at the moment I'm thinking either:

      Some form of wireless video sender from living room box to bedroom next door

      Or

      Sky Q

      You need to check this for whether Sky Q is available:
