Simple question really. How can I connect an additional TV from my Thomson Sky box, I require no control at the additional TV simply the extra faciliity of watching the programme being shown at the main TV.
Once the cable is installed /connected, is there any programme set-up required.
Many thanks

Nope, no special setting, just run the cable from the RF out on the digibox to the RF input on the TV. If you wish to also view the terrestrial channels on the 2nd TV, then of course you need to loop your main aerial feed into the digibox first. :)

If at a later date you wish to use a TV link eye for controlling the channels from the digibox in the second location, you will need to use RF output 2 on the digibox and go into the RF Outputs menu in the digibox to turn on the 9v power to the outlet.

PS. As a default, the digibox is set to RF channel 68, if you get interference on this channel, you may need to change it to something else, what the alternative should be, will depend on which terrestrial transmitters you receive from.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I think (correct me if I am wrong) that RF 2 has to be enabled anyway to get a modulated signal from it.
