I see some very affordable DVB-T modulators over on AliExpress, for example

 

 

 https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/HDMI-DVB-T-Modulator-Convert-HDMI-Extender-signal-to-digital-DVB-T-HDMI-TO-DVB-T/615149_32826225266.html?spm=2114.12010615.0.0.5ce5139e0dvY08

 

Has anyone bought one of these, and will it work with the HDMI output of my Sky box, or will the DHCP kill it?

No LCN support on the one a friend got that looked like that, so approved receivers ignored the channels from it.

I have one of those but haven't got it working yet as it can't cope with hdcp input. Will put this back on my to do list.

Can you solve that by a $2 HDMI switch from Aliexpress? My 2 port switch seems to strip HDCP
