published on UK Free TV

If you want to watch different programmes on different TVs, you need a decoder for each.

With satellite, you will also need a "Quad LNB" on the dish, as each satellite decoder requires a separate "LNB" connection for each.

For digital cable and Freeview, the incoming cable can be split and shared.

There are a few options (such as the Pace Twin PVR) that can be used as a decoder for a second room, using only a standard connection for the second TV.

If you simply want to be able to watch the same programme in a second room, this can be done using a standard TV "UHF" cable.

Lynne Knight: If you are also feeding Freeview into the conservatory via the Sky boxes aerial input socket, then try removing the Freeview aerial connection and see if this clears the problem, if it does then you will have to change the RF channel being used by the Sky boxes RF modulator.

Changing the RF output channel on a Sky+HD box.

(1) : Press "Services" then press > once to "Settings" and press on.

"Picture" should now be highlighted but do NOT press on it.

(2) : Press: "0 - 0 - 1 - Select" and the "Set up" tab should now be

(3) : Press the right hand > button 3 times to scroll along the list to "RF
out" and where the current setting will be seen and where you can change it
by punching in the new number.

Dont forget to press the "green" button to save any changes made before
exiting the menu system.

Should the aforementioned not be applicable, then try removing the magic eye from the circuit, if makes no difference then try the conservatory TV connected directly into the Sky boxes RF1 (not 2) output, if the signal is OK then the lead running into the conservatory has to be defective.

Further advice dependant on feedback.

Lynne Knight: By the way, if you do require to change the Sky boxes RF modulator output channel, then do not forget that you will have to rescan the TV used in the conservatory (whilst its set on analogue not DTV) to pick up the Sky boxes new RF output channel.
