    Sky+ HD & Magic Eye

    Just a quick question...

    Just got Sky+HD installed today, so thinking of wiring it to watch in the bedroom as well...

    So from my understanding I can buy a hdmi splitter and a hdmi lead to the bedroom, then a Magic Eye with enough coaxial to reach the bedroom so I can change the channel.

    So in summary, HDMI splitter for Picture+Audio, and Magic Eye for Remote, sound good? Or have I got a flawed plan?

    Yep that would work as long as your HDMI cable isn't more than 15 meters long (and at that length, you need a decent quality cable). Any longer than that and you will need to run your HDMI over CAT5 or CAT6 using HDMI BALUNS

    Cheers.
    Yeah I could probably get the run to be less than 10m as its an apartment and the bedroom is next to the lounge. I just had a thought that I could plug the Sky+HD into the AV Receiver then split the HDMI cable as then I could use the 360/PS3 in the bedroom as well as the wireless would work due to the thin walls/short distance I reckon anyways!

    Would be ncie if I could find a way of running the cables back through the wall plate to the bedroom wall plate...but I doubt I can.

    Thats possible, but the Sky box is already on the other side to the bedroom wall so a small hole or even running it exterior along the balcony might be better. It is just where the sky box is and the satellite point in the wall there is a wall plate and thus would be nice to run the leads through there up and drop back down to the bedroom wall plate.
