Hi, I have two Sky Tv boxes, two remotes, 2 Tv's. Sadley only one is rigged up, (downstairs in the living room). Can I link one box to another via some kinda cable and run the box upstairs so I can have sky on in the games room?
Many thanks

Do you want to watch a different channel upstairs, from downstairs?

I wouldnt rather watch a different channel upstairs as to the one downstairs yes, but would settle for the same channel downstairs if need be..

Or you can use (I think it's called a Rabbit, ask in your high street outlet (Dixons, Currys etc)). With that, you only need one box connected (and you can control channels from both TVs
