      You need to run a cable direct from the RF-2 output to the 2nd TV or to the input of your distribution amplifier if you have one. If you do have an amplifier, re-route the TV aerial direct to the aerial input on the sky box.

      You really need a magic eye to operate it properly, or you will be back and forwards changing the channel on the box with the Sky remote. This page shows how to set it up and the equipment you need.
