picture the scene... rush down to the pub to watch the United game on ART today.. and he informs me and the rest of the crowd its on delay till 5:30pm!!!

i said cant you get TPS he said no :(

i said i can i go home get my box and plug it in, cos my DB gets TPS no problem..

so i did and it worked, only thing was it only worked on his TV upstairs... and the signal is sent downstairs using a normal TV coax???

as the Dreambox only has a scart output, is it possible to somehow solve this problem... maybe a Scart cable to Coax converter/adapter... does one exist?

someone else must have had a similar problem, ie sending to another room?

open to suggestions..

PS the crowd in the pub missed 15 mins, then ended up watching the Chelsea game instead.

Get a 7020S.
It has a RF output/loop through.

If not get a sender that allows the signal from one scart outlet to be sent to a reciever box connected to scart socket and most nowadays allow a remote control signal to be relayed back to the sender box. So late night xx viewing can be got in the bedroom with one hand! (obviously for ManU fans!!!)

I have to say, I am shocked and horrified :-crying about the terrible 15 minutes honest reds had to endure because of your inability to improvise! :p

All you had to do is set up a few mirrors from downstairs, even the ancient Egyptians knew how to do that...
But seriously, an easy option is to loop it through a video recorder, most of them have a scart entrance as well as a normal coax. So all he has to do is put any old VCR next to the dreambox upstairs...

I don't know of course why the dreambox does not work with the TV downstairs, but whatever the reasons I never want to hear such a horror story like this again!
