Hi
I subscribe to sky tv which I have set up in my living room. I presume the previous occupants had multiroom as there is a cable coming into the front bedroom from the satellite dish. I have a LG tv in the back bedroom with I presume freeview (originally thought it was freesat but not sure now). The cable in the front room was a double pin/cable (sorry don't know proper names) - I pulled them apart and extended one of them through the attic and into back of tv. I can now receive the freeview channels in the back bedroom but would like to know how best to receive more channels, namely the kids channels I get downstairs.
I can't afford to pay monthly for sky multiroom, so was hoping there was some other way? The tv has all sorts of inputs available but I really don't understand what to do or buy in order to use them. I would also like to eventually set up a tv in the front bedroom which I was going to use the other part of the sky cable for - is this the best way?
And just to push my luck even more! - what would be the best way to get tv in my third (and final) bedroom?
Any help in very very simple terms much appreciated.
Thanks

try 'video sender' on ebay . will allow you to watch [or change channel] whatever the sky box is displaying in main room . you can even use a receiver in each room if you buy one with extra receivers .

Videosenders are ok but

1) prone to interference from wifi systems & other 2.4 & 5GHz radio systems

2) you are limited to watching whatever you have on the main receiver.

hi jaid40 if you are looking for a video sender go for the 5.8ghz ones instead of the 2.4ghz as these are prone for interference ie turning on a microwave !!

hope this helps
