      Sky+ in second room using RF2 output

      I'm about to extend my Sky+ into a second room. Having read a bit on here I think using the RF2 output and running a double screened co-ax cable will be sufficient for our needs. I'll also use a Sky Eye for a second remote.

      I have not purchased a second LCD TV yet, but I was hoping to get something around 19 / 22 in widescreen format and preferabley HD ready just to "future proof" it. However, looking at various sites any that are HD ready seem to have HDMI, Composite or SCART connections - no RF input. Is it possible to connect the output from the Sky+ RF2 to any of these connections, and is there an adaptor I need to get ?

      Thanks
      Andrew

      I can't think that any TV wouldn't have an RF input - that is the usual TV aerial socket!

      Are you sure that you have checked the specifications?

      i second felixtcat youll find that most companies dont advertise rf input as most people now use scart or hdmi but the old ariel socket will still be there for some time to come

      I think the simple answer for me is a trip to Comet and have a look at the sets on display


      Thanks guys.

      Lol, I was just gonna suggest just that. I think tho that it is that common that the manufactures dont tend to specify it, bit like saying its got a screen and an on/off button

      You stuck for room where its going, as you can get some serious kit in a lot bigger screensize for not a lot nowadays.
