[Standard 2 Room Distribution] [Standard 3 Room Distribution] [Highest quality 2 room distribution]

Standard Multi Room SKY TV
This diagram shows the standard method for piping SKY digital TV to another room in the house with remote control. Pictures are sent through the second RF output of the digibox along with a control signal to power the 'magic eye TVLink' that allows you to have remote control in the second room. The quality from this setup is reasonable, however if you are looking for a much higher quality solution, click here

CONNECTION:

1. Digibox RF2 output goes to the TVLink using RF ariel cable.

2. TVLink out to the ariel input of the second TV.

3. Position the 'magic eye' for use with the remote control.

If all is working, the red LED on the magic eye should illuminate. If it does not, see the excellent Satcure site for solutions

PRODUCTS NEEDED:

Sky Magic Eye
New SKY Remote
RF Cable

 
Distributing SKY Digital to 2 or more locations with remote control

If you want to distribute SKY Digital to 2 or more locations, things become a little more complicated as you will need an RF distribution amplifier. The trouble is most of the distribution amps will stop the control signal from the Digibox and therefore stop the remote control from working.

You can get around this by using the Triax magic eye and a Triax distribution amplifier that gets around this problem.

1. Digibox RF2 output goes to the Triax distribution amplifier input using RF ariel cable.

2. Come out of the distribution amp using output 1 and connect to the Triax magic eye. Connect the other end of the magic eye to the TV.

3. Position the 'magic eye' for use with the remote control.

4. Repeat this procedure for other TV's in the house

If all is working, the red LED on the magic eye should illuminate. If it does not, see the excellent Satcure site for solutions.

PRODUCTS NEEDED:

SKY Magic Eye
Triax distribution amplifier
2 x New SKY Remote
RF Cable

 
 
SKY TV in two rooms in high resolution

If you want to watch SKY TV in two different rooms (watching the same channel), the usual way is to run a lead from the second RF output into a special magic 'eye' and then from that into your second TV. This does give you the added benefit of having remote control from either room, however this situation is not ideal if you have a projector in the lounge and a large, quality TV in the bedroom as you would want to watch from both locations in the best possible quality.

The diagram on the left details how to achieve this. For this example, S-Video has been used however you can do exactly the same with component.

 

CONNECTION:

1. Digibox scart out into scart distribution amp input.

2. Output 1 from the scart distribution amp to the scart input no the TV.

3. Output 2 from the scart distribution amp to the input of the RGB > S-Video convertor.

4. S-Video and Audio out from the RGB > S-Video convertor to the S-Video and Audio input of the plasma or projector.

For Remote Control operation:
Run a long RF lead from the second RF output on the Digibox to the location of your other television. From there, plug in a TVlink or 'magic eye'. If all is working, the red LED on the magic eye should illuminate. If it does not, see the excellent Satcure site for solutions

Products Needed:
RGB to S-Video convertor
Scart distribution amplifier
Long phono to phono audio lead
Scart lead x 3
Long, high quality S-Video Lead
SKY Magic Eye
New SKY Remote
RF Cable
