I noticed my sky sattelite box has a loop/out socket on the back of it.  Can this be used to loop the signal from the satellite dish to a freeview set top box, in the same room or do I need a direct connection to the satellite dish.

By the way I have no kowledge of this topic, so if replying please give me the "for dummies" versionEmbarassed

I have a splitter etc to distribute staellite signal around the home, but if I can simply connect the sky and freeview decoders in the lounge together, that would be a simple solution.

Cheers


Mike

Hi, I am not aware of any Sky STBs that have an IF loop through only RF, but my memory may be fuzzy. Most FTA/FreeView STBs have an IF loop through allowing you to connect your Sky box via without needing a splitter.
