Is it possible to run 3 TVs (all in different rooms but within 10m) on HDMI from one output – say MySky?

Thanks

Look around.

Yes it can be done.  Needs to be an active unit so that you can display on more than one TV simultaneously.  (Budget splitters allow multiple tvs to be connected, but only one unit displaying at a time).

Yes. There are no issues you just need a HDMI splitter.

If you are going to run HDMI over longer distances the easiest way of doing this is to use baluns and to run it over cat5e/cat6 cable. These don't come particularly cheap though.
