  1. Hi Great ones.
    I want to extend my Sat TV independently around my house. It will need to be a wired connection (my walls are 2ft granite), I can pick up Sat boxes for very little, and am well versed in running cables and installing networks. Anybody out there done this? I am sure there are lots, this is the one skill area where I am seriously deficient in knowledge.
     
  2. Each box will need it's own lnb in order to tune into any one channel (so for full functionality a box capable of recording will require two).

    It is quite an easy job, but as Joe Private says, it all depends on the amount of outlets you have on your dish LNB.
    I have 2 cables running into the Sky+ box (required) and 2 separate cables running to boxes in bedrooms 1 + 2 from a 4 outlet LNB.

    You can get LNB's with up to 8 outlets on them but they were pricey when I last looked.

    Connectors for cables etc were pennies down the local market.
     
  4. Thanks for the answers chaps. Plenty to go on here.
     
  5. Are you running a full sat system or just crappy sky?
     
  6. Full Sat, none of your freeesat nonsense.
