      Connecting Sky to Mulitple TV's

      Hello - looking for some advice.

      At my place of work we have 4 televisions linked to Sky through a CAT5 server (AVi Lynx). Sky is connected to the server through scart.

      We have added a 5th TV to the network but only have 4 outputs from the server.

      My question is:
      1) Could I connect the 5th TV simply by using coax from the sky box to the TV?
      2) Will it work using both scart and coax as outputs?
      3) Is there a maximum distance for coax cable runs?
      4) Does anyone else have any ideas who to connect up the 5th TV?

      Thanks for any help or advice on this

      Yes. Use the RF2 outlet.
      2) Will it work using both scart and coax as outputs?
      Yes
      3) Is there a maximum distance for coax cable runs?
      The maximum distance would depend on the quality of the cable used. With good quality TV aerial co-ax I would not recommend greater than 40 metres but with extra low loss cable you could probably double this distance. For really long cable runs you could fit a signal booster near the mid-point.
      4) Does anyone else have any ideas who to connect up the 5th TV?
      It depends on the complexity of the work involved. For a simple run you could probably do the work yourself otherwise use the services of a TV aerial installer.
