I have recently had MySky installed. I have a Panasonic HD projector, a Panasonic 42 HD TV in the lounge and a Panasonic 32 HD in the bedroom.
Prior to having MySky installed, the SAT feed came into the lounge and the current Sky channel was split off to the porjector (downstairs to projector/Home theatre and in the bedroom) via RF cable.
When I got MySky I installed it downstairs on the projector (as that is where i watch the sport etc) and wanted to feed the current channel upsatirs to the lounge and Bedroom.
I was able to run a RF feed upstairs to the TV and split it there. Reception is fine.
However, I want to watch normal Freeview on the two TVs upstairs and have an aerial feed coming to these two.
The Freeview reception is perfect. When i try and combine the RF feed from downstairs and the aerial feed into one coax cable, the signal is too weak on both, so the picture quality on both the Sky RF feed and Freeview is sub-standard. I have tried amplifying one ot both of the RF feeds, but that does not help. I have tried a couple of diplexers to combine the two feeds into one, but neither offer quality.
I have Cat 6 cable running through the house (There are RJ45 jacks at both upstairs and downstairs TV locations) and am thinking that using HDMI splitters and that single Cat5/6 extender that Jaycar sell to spit the HMDI signal out of the MySKy box to the projector and to the Cat5 extender.
Then at the upstairs jack, put the other Cat5/6 extender and another splitter to run the HDMI feed to the HDMI input to the TV in the lounge and then bedroom.
There are two Cat5/6 switches in between on the cable and the length of Cat5/6 is about 15/20 metres max.
My question is: Does running the HDMI splitters, extenders through switches and then through another splitter sound feasible. The investment is about $300 to $400, so I don't want to dive in without some sort of certainty that it will work.
