I currently have Sky TV running on my TV in the lounge,have recently acquired a TV for the bedroom and have no idea on how to connect it via satellite to Freeview - as this is what I would like to run on this bedroom TV.

I understand I will need a 'Satellite Receiver Top Box' which is plugged into the TV and Satellite (much like Sky) but where do I find the Satellite cord to plug it in?? Is there a way to get multiple cords running from the Satellite? As I have Sky the cord is in use.

It should be a standard F connector, and you can get a splitter from Jaycar or any other electronics place, and have both the Sky decoder & Freeview STB plugged in.
