Hello, I have bought a new Panasonic LED TV which doesn't have an analog tuner, my problem is my SKY is connected to another TV and then sent around the house to the other tvs through a cable and watched on the analog channel of the other TVs. Because my new tv doesn't appear to have that option is there another way of getting it onto my TV? If i plug my old tv in the same place I get freeview (built in) and sky through analog TV.

The easiest way would be to use a HDMI splitter, then use a HDMI over Ethernet extender.

A DVBT modulator is not cheap.

Menu/setup/digital tuning/add Tv signal

But, I would second SATTV's excellent advice.

 

 

Quality-wise, you are using the worst option possible to distribute video round the house. Heck, even using RCA (red, white and yellow) connectors would be a lot better than using an RF modulator, which is what you appear to be describing.
