Knowing what you have, and what you use at the moment will help a lot.
The Freeview box is an Openbox S10 DVB S-2 which is able to pick up the Aussie channels
- What type of connectors does the Freeview box have?
The connections are HDMI, the 3 AV (Red/White and Yellow), and it also has a Loop Out which a F-type connector can screw into (right next to the LNB In)
I am using the HDMI cable to the Main TV
- What type of cable(s) do you use to connect it to the first TV (in the lounge) at present?
The 2nd TV has the 3 AV (Red/White and Yellow) and a RF aerial Inlet
- What type of connections does the second TV (in the bedroom) have available?
I was wondering if I could connect a cable from the Loop Out on the Freeview and connect to the RF aerial cable (which has been disconected from the old TV aerial) with on of these
Or am I completely worng?
The total length of cable from the Freeview box to the 2nd TV would be about 10 metres
HDMI, Component Video with Stero Sound, Composite Video with Stereo Sound, S-Video, and SCART are some of the probable answers - though there might be others.
Mattv: you could probably use the the LNB signal out with a RG6 cable to the bedroom and buy a second receiver.
injuised:Mattv: As JimmyH says above but if you've got a extra $100 bucks or so you could probably use the the LNB signal out with a RG6 cable to the bedroom and buy a second receiver. Then you can watch whatever you want and don't have to go to the lounge to change channel.
