Most TVs have an anologue tuner as well at the moment, but they won't forever. There are some flat panel TVs however, that only have a digital tuner, so if that is what they have, they may be stuck.

would be nice if sky broadcasts a few of there cannels on freeview as it could become a problem .may be sky should be pushing built in sky tvs .this would over come the poblem .or maybe some one will come up with a gadget to inject sky as a digital signal that could be picked up on freeview.

I'm sure they will eventually, well at least on terrestrial digital, but not for a while.

A lot of Hotels now are running on CAT5 cable systems, then you can inject as many channels in as you like. :)

looked at one of your posts where u recomend a avi lynx shame they are so exspensive near on a grand for a 4 input 8 out .im sure a lot of people would use this system if it was half the price.but again thank u 4 making me aware of the cat 5 route .going to search the net for a cheaper version.

Global do a similar type of system, I think it's a little cheaper.

Not as far as I know, I'm pretty sure it is composite video only.
