How to connect sky to two TVs & one decoder

Updated February 21, 2017

Sky television receivers, such as the Digibox, are used to decode Sky Television programming. If you have a Sky decoder in your home, it can be connected to two televisions. You can connect the decoder using one of two methods, depending on the cables that you want to use. However, you will need the decoder and the cables to connect to the televisions.

Plug the end of the coaxial cable from the dish to the "Dish Input" port on the back of the decoder.

Plug one end of a coaxial cable to the "RF Out-1" port on the back of the receiver. Plug the other end of the coaxial cable to the "RF In" on the back of the first television.

Plug one end of another coaxial cable to the "RF Out-2" port on the back of the receiver. Plug the other end of the coaxial cable to the "RF In" on the second television.

Verify that the coaxial cable from the dish is connected to the "Dish Input" port on the decoder.

Plug one end of the Scart cable into the "VCR Scart" port on the back of the decoder. Plug the other end of the Scart cable into the "Scart" port on the VCR.

Plug one end of a coaxial cable into the "RF Out" on the back of the VCR. Plug the other end of the cable into the "RF In" on the back of the first television.

Plug one end of a second Scart cable into the "TV Scart" on the back of the decoder. Plug the other end of the Scart cable into the "Scart" port on the back of the second television.

Tip

The Scart connections will provide a better signal than the coaxial cables.
