    There is a video sender at Aldi this week for £19.99. Be aware that you have to watch the same channel in both rooms with these devices.

    I have this one, http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thomson-VS680U-Wireless-Sender-Control/dp/B0019M6GZ6/ref=pd_cp_ce_1?pf_rd_p=136153791&pf_rd_s=center-41&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B0019M4G58&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL 5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=16CCMNZ5R9PA7YB1EBYG

    Works a treat & controls Sky from your bedroom.

    Am I right that you can actually watch any Sky chanel in your bedroom rather than what ever one is on your main tv? :confused:

    It is really used for going to bed & watching Sky/freeview as long as nobody is wanting to watch Sky/freeview on the main Tv. I hope I have made it clear enough.

    Yes you could do that, and you would need cables & a card. This would mean you would have Sky multiroom( £10 extra per month).

    Is the Sky+ box from Sky itself? I am not sure but if it is I think you would use your current card & would need a second card for the other box.( Sky would charge you multiroom for this)

    Someone on here might have a way around this method.

    Quad LNB ...about a tenner from eBay, cable, clips and " f " connections about the same, the another tenner a month to Sky.

    PVR = Recording mode.

    I got a Sender from Tesco.

    Works a treat and you can also use the remote to change channels.

    another hi-jack i'm afraid.

    Have just but the medion one from aldi, seems to do the job perfectly... with the exception of the remote control.

    I have read that some set top boxes use a bandwidth that a standard IR extender cannot deal with but I have not been able to find any info as to whether this applies to Tiscali TV set top boxes.

    Has anyone managed to get it to work with Tiscali TV?

    can anyone tell me which scart socket they connected the sender to. I have tried all of them and i cannot pick up a signal upstairs. I know that it works as my brother bought it for me and tested it at his house before he sent it to me. also should the sender ir dangly bits be in front of the sky+ box or the side? sorry the instructions are non-existent. Also does it matter that the upstairs tv is not connected to an aerial?

    many thanks.
