When using my old white Sky+ box, i could plug in a coaxial

Resolved Question:

Hi,
When using my old white Sky+ box, i could plug in a coaxial cable into the RF OUT socket and run the cable into the back of another TV in another room and watch the sky channel on both TV's.
The new Sky+HD box does not have an RF out socket so is there a way we could wire it up to still be able to watch the same channel in another room.

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
Yes, I got the picture that attached to this thread which helped me to suggest a way to keep watching Sky box output on other TV as you had it with old box.
Did you get my previous reply?

It has just come through with this message.

So if i plug a scart into the back on the new Sky HD box and then connect the original coax cable to it, it should transfer the same channel to the second tv?

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
You need to add a device calls 'RF Modulator box with Scart Input' which will do this job, plug a scart into the back on the new Sky HD box and then connect it to RF Modulator box Scart Input and connect original coax cable to RF Out of modulator box, it should transfer the same channel to the second TV.
I hope this info will help, please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
