Hello I have Sky hd in one room and a second Sky in another room,worked by seperate controls.
I have bought a humax hdr 1010s for Freesat watching on both tv,s.
What connections and cables will I need to work both tv,s on their own.

John Jones: The answer to your question is dependant on various factors, and so maybe you could clarify on the following points.

(1) : Are the Humax 1010's ("if" two are involved) intended to work in parallel with the Sky boxes in order to offer each room the choice of viewing either Sky or Freesat?.

(2) : What input connection facilities are offered on the TV's involved? because if both are fitted with HDMI inputs? then HDMI leads could be used to couple the Humax 1010's into the TV's in the same way as possibly already done in the case of your Sky HD box.

(3) : If your Sky boxes are of the Sky+ variety? then each will have two coax feeds coming from the dish, two more then being required for each of the Humax 1010's, that is unless you fit a two way "satellite" grade switch box onto each of the two feeds from the dish prior to them terminating on the Sky boxes LNB input sockets.

A more precise answer can be given once the aforementioned points are clarified.
