I need some help to get sky tv to a second tv (not multiroom).
Current set up is: Main tv with sky+ box. Sky box has cable in from dish. Old tv cable is not needed here now but is still connected at box in attic and goes in to dvd player. Upstairs there are 3 rooms with cables connected to the box in the attic. This box has a cable coming in from the old rooftop aerial. The 3 upstairs tv's currently get freeview channels and I would like this to remain as it is.
However, I also want to enable one of the upstairs tv's to get sky from the main tv and to be able to control it from upstairs.
If I take the redundant cable from the aerial that goes in to the dvd and put it in to the sky box, then move the other end of that cable from an output to an input connection on the box in the attic would it work? I would then use a magic eye connected to the tv I want to use upstairs.
I hope this makes sense as I am a real amateur but I can't afford the £160 quoted for this job by a tv installer so I'd like to sort it out myself if possible.
