Will work fine, all it does is take a wireless internet connection and supply it over ethernet, needs to be configured via a sky box though the first time unless someone has found a manual way.
nice one, i knew you would come up with the goods ;)

They should have connected it to the net during installation, was this not the case? Or have you moved it post install.

I've just kicked Sky into touch due to their ever increasing costs and just had TalkTalk You View fitted, telly works fine, no problems with broadband, tuned in the laptops and iPad etc. However, I used to run 3 other t.v.'s around the house, each one is a 'standalone' Freeview enabled set, and I was able to watch Sky by changing the AV signal, and getting on the analogue channel, couldn't change the Sky channel, but that didn't matter, and watched Freeview as normal. Problem now is that after the engineer had left, none of the other t.v.'s worked despite him saying he'd set it up, (my own fault for not checking them before he left). I've now discovered that the aerial amplifier booster that used to send the signals has packed up completely, - not even the led lights up. I tried to get TalkTalk to send him back, (this was within an hour of his leaving), and they insisted that I pay a call out charge, which naturally I ranted at the operator and demanded to speak to his manager. My complaint is ongoing about this, but to get to the point, I bought a new booster, but it still doesn't work, all the wiring has been untouched, and after finally speaking to someone 'senior' have established that even if I could send the signal around the house it would only 'mirror' the programme in the main lounge. This is obviously not ideal, as any children in their bedroom could watch a programme that would otherwise be parentally controlled.
Any technoheads out there who can advise me how to set up a system that will feed the other t.v.'s with just normal Freeview channels? As I said, each telly is Freeview enabled.

First of all learn to learn to use paragraphs, secondly what you've written isn't clear. Your set-up is none standard and nothing to do with talk talk, there job is to get youview and their service working, it is up to you to get your stuff working. Are the other TV's connected to an aerial.

First of all, learn to use punctuation. Secondly, your spelling leaves a lot to be desired. Proper nouns should be capitalised and semicolons should be used prior to some of your pauses where you have not used conjunctions.

Dear Grouser. Interesting issue and the grammar debate was even more fascinating. Anyway, I used to do this when I had Sky. I ran a coaxial cable back up to the loft and split it with the ariel into the booster. You than tune all TVs on analogue to the output signal of the Sky Box, or other device (I originally did it with a video recorder - remember them?). When analogue was still switched on it used to interfere a bit but I guess that's not a problem anymore. Sky magic eyes worked fine for changing the channel via another TV. I guess you can do the same with a Freeview Box, if it has an analogue output via a coax plug but I don't know if you can change the channel remotely. There is no way you could have different channels on different Tvs.

update:-

youview from talk talk now includes an option to install yourself for free to avoid the £50 feelink here, the box will be delivered in 3 working days with everything needed to install yourself: hdmi, scart, 3m ethernet cable and software disc to update the modem, also an option to purchase home plugs for £35, also the sky wireless connector works in my xbox so i am confident it will work in the youview box

Can anybody advise TalkTalk you view from what I understand runs from a Basic Ariel. However as I have a Sky dish and Sky box in subscription and working, can I link the 2 together? Therefore avoiding a new tv ariel!

Oh my goodness, just got to share my good news (I'm not very technically minded, just a dumb blonde actually) but it's taken me most of the evening googling stuff but I have now successfully used my Sky wireless connector, plugged into the back of my Huawei TalkTalk Youview box and successfully got myself TV on Demand!!! I of course, read the instruction manual and it said "If you have a WPS button on your router, press it, then press the WPS button on the Sky wireless connector and they will automatically connect, well blow me down, they've done just that!! Really chuffed with myself! Saved myself a few quid buying those Powerline adapters. I'm always telling my son to "read the instruction manual", so I'm really glad I practise what a preach. Good luck everyone! Heather

So what do you need to do? I have a sky connector (never used) and have a talktalk router now but am confused as to what I need to do to make it work. Does the talktalk modem have WPS button?

I've read comments above stating that is possible to use Sky wireless connector to connect talk talk box wirelessly. However, my sky router just keeps flashing the wireless sign. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank hou
