      Sky in another room without multi room?

      Hi I have Sky+ HD with all channels and one multi room subscription.

      I was wondering is it possible to get my sky channels into my conservatory (kids play room) without having to have another multi room sub?

      The main reason being is my 2 daughters favourite shows are on the Disney Jnr and Nick Jnr.

      Any help is very welcome and thanks in advance.

      You could run a co-ax cable from rf2 output on your Sky+ HD box to the conservatory and use a magic eye there to control channel change etc. but this would only allow same programme on the TV associated with the main Sky box and the conservatory TV. If the multiroom box is Sky HD (no plus) then there is no rf2 output but you could still use a video sender to show the channel this box is tuned to on your conservatory TV.

      There are several choices in this respect. You don't mention what STB they have or how it is connected in their room so I'll list the most common solutions.

      If you have the Sky+HD in their room, you could run an aerial lead from their STB to the conservatory. Fit a 'Magic-Eye' and enable the RF2 power and they can watch all the channels (although in SD) which also appear on their own TV. Of course you could use your STB to do this instead, I was just thinking that they could use theirs.

      Another possibility would be to fit an AV Sender. There are several to choose from on the Maplin site. Try to avoid the ones which work on the 2.4GHz frequency as this could interfere with your WiFi. Some connect via the Scart. The more expensive ones connect via the HDMI output.

      An alternative would be to run a 10m or 20m HDMI lead with a powered splitter (if required) to feed the TV instead.

      Finally, both channels are available on Sky Go. You could connect a PC to the TV and stream the content live. However I just tried this and the programmes on right now were both blocked (licensing agreements ) so this might not be a great solution all the time.

      Edit: lol Seawright got there before me
