    To help you with your query, I have one, have you moved the Starview upstairs or are you trying to have it connect to your upstairs TV from its position downstairs?

    You could try connecting your coax cable into the RF out side of the Starview and see will this work. I am not 100% on this method as I think this is just a loop through and may not work, also the signal may become degraded.

    My setup is different as I have quite a few boxes dotted around the house and so I have never had to think along this line.

    Hi seat183,

    I conected my box to my video recoder and tuned my video recorder to the box, from there I put the out video cable into a a two-splitter and from there I ran cables to my sitting TV and the TV upstairs.

    You will have to have both TV's tuned to the video recorder and have the channel you tuned on the video recorder to the box ON all the time for this to work.

    I would love to have a few more boxes like sc0user but I am not as rich as he is.


    Hello sc0user my young friend.

    Hope You and yours all well m8.

    Hi Brian,

    Good idea, I suppose it will act something along the lines as a scart splitter. With regards to the number of boxes I have, as you know I like having back ups, as they are all different types and all are of course for educational purposes only LOL.

    Hope you are keeping well as always :)

    Cheers sc0user.

    You wus robbed on Sunday.
    That ref is nearly as blind as meself (he should have went to spec#vers)
    My lot (spurs)aren't having a jolly start to the season.



    I'm doing good, have just joined the ranks of the unemployed, but I am enjoying the rest and I have a new job lined up soon, I hope. I was making and testing antennas for 26 years. No remission no parole.

    Hope you are slaving away, but not too hard.

    Cheers brother.

    Hi sc0user and seat123,


    Looks like jol got a reprieve at spurs.

    I heard he is buying another striker after seeing this goal in the link below.

    Download it, it's a cracking good goal.

    Hi sc0user and seat183,

    Below is a post from tizler, all credit to the tizler.
    It's a link to a site where you can buy an RF Modulator, which converts a scart signal to rf.
    Put the rf into a 2way or 4 way splitter and connect to other TV's

    Wow - think I may have found my answer - might be worth a shot at - this bit of kit might work
