I have a tv in the bedroom which has a lan cable running to it. Can I get the output from the composite outputs on a myski box feed into my network for output to bedroom tv which is a LG tv with dlna support?

It is possible to send the Composite signal over the cat-5 cable, but you won't be able to use that same cable for Ethernet at the same time:

That was my first result for Cat-5 video balun. I'm sure there are others - ebay/AliExpress?

I'm guessing you would have to install some kind of media server to do that.  Plug MySky into the media server, and then let it re-broadcast it over the network.

What about just using an online service, like SkyGo or Netflix?  Much simpler.

DLNA is for streaming between a hard drive and a tv or networked devices.

You want the balun devices as suggested above.

At one end you convert composite or HDMI into cat5, then at the TV end you convert from cat5 back to composite or hdmi and use the AV inputs instead of the ethernet port.

There are HDMI over IP boxes for not much now too. A gigabit switch at each end would have your data for the TV working as normal as well. They have latency which can be annoying if you can hear both TVs tho.

Or a HD base T extender will usually have 100 meg lan passthru on it, enough for streaming anything there is at the moment.

Forget the composite outputs on the box. They are a relic from the distant past that should have been left off the boxes ;)

Yes something like that, you seem to be saying that you want to retain the ethernet on your TV so you keep the TV on internet, so you need to find a way of converting the Mysky output to IP/ethernet. If Mysky doesn't have ethernet then you need some kind of media converter/server.
