I'm sure this is a very basic question, but I'm trying a bit of DIY to save paying for a call-out! And I'd be very grateful for an answer.
I have a Sky setup, with one lead from RF Output 1 going to a TV in the lounge, and 1 lead coming from RF output 2 going to another TV in another room. Obviously I can only change channels where the digibox is, but I'm fine with this.
Is it possible to cable up another 3rd TV, so I can watch whatever is on the SKY channels, using some kind of "splitter" gismo? Or is 2 the maximum?
Thanks.:-snowman

Thanks Rolf. So just to clarify:
I need a "[SIZE=+1]T120 Amplifier[/SIZE]" for £12.75 (plus VAT) and also a TV link. Where can I get one of those from?
Thanks.[SIZE=-1]

Actually, can I reply to myself???
Looking at the site Rolf suggested:
http://www.tvlink.co.uk/acatalog/tvlinkplus.html
there is a kit for sale at £38:32 (plus VAT) which will give me, I quote:

"Comprises of a T120 amplifier/splitter ,two tvLinks and two Sky digibox remote controls."

My question is: Will this enable me to have 3 TVs with the capability of watching SKY through 1 digibox, and be able to change channels from any of these TVs, but obviously so long as they all are watching the same channel?
Thanks.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

As long as you run the cable, and I believe the additional connectors.

Please however , have a look at your SKY guarantee on the receiver, any connection than causes a fault with the box invalidates a guarantee on callouts (whatever that means) .

If you know the installer, then fine, bung him/her a beer when you call them, but these boxes dont half know whats connected to them, and send all the data back to the broadcaster (yes, even the fact you have a second TV connected) .

Be careful

Blurry hell CH, you'll be wearing a tin foil hat soon to avoid satellite scanning.;)

There is no problem at all with connecting a global amp and TV links, as they are Sky approved accessories and Sky themselves supply and install them.
