Since I'm ditching Sky TVs conventional mysky with multiroom sky box package and going with a single HTPC with a quad tuner and streaming live tv via Media Portal tv-server to the other TVs with computers attached to them, will I have problems with lnb signal strength and frying the lnbs?
In this post: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=83&topicid=40568 they talk about having more than one device sourcing power it could fry something (some clarification needed), Will I need a specific lnb splitter to deal with this?
So I am getting the signal from one sky dish and splitting it into four for each lnb. Currently in our house we have two lnbs connected to a mysky hdi box from a hole in a wall behind the TV (using one of sky's own splitters, and I believe from all the cables behind the Tv the second rooms skybox has a single cable running under the floor to that room, with a DIY kiwi attitude maybe a could cut (special equipment maybe?) into the wire leading into the other room and put a cable ending onto it and get a 1 to 2 splitter, or I could leave that cable altogether (for future use, say when we move or I leave home) and run a splitter unders sky's splitter or replace their splitter with one of my own.
