I have 2 tvs - one in the living room and one in the bedroom.

Customer Question

I have 2 tvs - one in the living room and one in the bedroom. I also have aerial points on the wall in both rooms. Until recently i had a free view box and old tv in the living room. I used the aerial rf in and out features on the box to make the tv in the bedroom work. The free view box was in the living room and had two cables that went into aerial sockets on the wall and was connected to the tv by scart. The bedroom TV would only work if the freeview box was on standby/on and both tvs could be on the same time. i have a new main tv with in-built freeview, but now the second tv in the bedroom won't work and says it has no signal. I think it is because there is no obvious way to pass the signal back out of the tv into wall, which the RF out on the box used to do. Any idea how I can get both TVs working?

Hi there,There is no way to pass the built-in freeview signal from a TV back out to another TV.You could either move the old freeview box to the bedroom and use it on the TV there, or get a new TV for the bedroom with built-in freeview.

Hi ***** in the bedroom has freeview built in, it just doesn't have a signal anymore. Because the freeview box had an RF in and RF out that plugged into two different aerial points on the wall, it must have been passing the actual signal to the bedroom aerial point. As that TV would only work when the freeview box was on, and now it has no signal. I have tried using the freeview box in the bedroom but that doesn't work either. Thanks

Ok, then you will need to connect an aerial to the TV in the bedroom to tune in its built-in freeview.
