*Tech Help* - Splitting SKY HD to three rooms

6y, 6m agoPosted 6 years, 6 months ago
I currently have sky+
I have split the coaxial so it goes to 3 different rooms & have ''sky eyes'' in each so i am able to view sky in sd in all rooms & able change the channel in in all rooms.
I'm looking to upgrade to HD, but I want HD in all 3 rooms - I have looked into this & found you can use a hdmi splitter which will work.
BUT I also want to be able to change the channel in 3 different rooms as well as using HDMI.
firstly Is this possible?? & can I use my current ''Sky eye's''?

Thankyou All, hope this makes sense

Not sure if this is 100% correct, but I recently had a new dish installed (moved house), and this has 4 feeds available from dish, so up to 4 channels. They have just brought out 1tb HD box which I know nothing about, but the older ones only had 2 inputs, so for your 3 feeds you would need 2 boxes.

Yes this is possible I managed to put 2 aerial leads into 1 connection into output 2 on back of HD box, and wrapped it together with electrical tape. therefore allowing me to change channel in a different room

EDIT: if you only want to change channels in each room, as apposed to watching different channels then you just need the one HD box.

you would have to use the existing coax cables for the magic eyes, and hdmi cableing for the hd signal,

Although you can still watch hd content via the coax cable (i.e 4hd) it wont be a true hd picture,

Thanks for Confirming this. I tought it would be possible, but needed to make sure.
Now to see if I can get it in time for world cup - think i've left it a bit late though

I have one sky hd box. hdmi cable out of the sky hd box into a hdmi splitter then to 2 tvs, and sky hd box outputs the signal via hdmi and component at the same time so i use component on 1 tv and hdmi on the other 2. p.s. component only does the picture so you have to use the red and white connections on the back of the hd box for the sound . you can use your old sky eyes to change channels, but unfortunately only one channel can can be viewed at any one time.
