I am setting up my new house and it has been wired to have the decoder in the living room. I also have a component set of cables to the bedroom and a component set of cables to the theatre room...presuming I also use component straight from the decoder to the tv in the living room, this means I'll need a decoder with 3 component outs...do Sky have such a decoder?

Your best bet may be a component distribution amp, Jaycar sell them for around $100 from memory and they have 4 outputs.

No joy on that but I think you can get 2 out of a mysky, and the local screen on hdmi would solve it.

I think I might just go with a decoder that has 1 component out, then split it 3 ways using the jaycar amp previously mentioned...can anyone comment on the quality of the picture after being split 3/4 ways?

Can anyone also confirm which brands/models of decoders support component?  Thanks

If it were me and I was wiring my house I would make sure you have RG6 and Ethernet outlets everywhere, that way you could either watch freeview or sky over the DVB-S/T using a splitter. Or stream any TV over the network. I also have seen 2xCAT5e to HDMI converters.. which look pretty sweet.

The jaycar one is ok, but watch out for groundloops if you are connecting it to other things at the remote TV's that are earthed.
