      Newbie query: wireless telephone extensions for sky+box

      Hi
      Am v new to this kind of thing (never posted on a forum before), so apologies if this has been asked before and i just haven't found it...

      Is there a way to connect my Sky+ box to my telephone line via a wireless telephone extension, rather than having cabling running around my house? I saw Maplin sell a wireless telephone extension, but have no idea if this is compatible with Sky+
      I do have broadband, but not through sky. DK if this affects the issue?

      really grateful for any advice (in simple words please! am total idiot with technology!)

      Sophie

      I think they all use DECT now (radio transmission) instead of transmitting through the mains power cables. Some state they are incompatible with specific models (but a few people refute this) and there's always the possibility that your building construction will block or reflect the signals. So the answer is "try it".

      If it is

      DECT Wireless Phone Line Extender > Maplin

      this model, then it should do what you want within the limitations of cordless phones.
