I am extending into my loft and am looking the best way to distribute TV signals.
At the moment we have 2x sky hd boxes, both with magic eyes.
One outputs hdmi to a sony lcd and with the magic eye to a 2nd screen. The other one outputs hdmi through a Yamaha 863 amp to a panasonic plasma, and by magic eye to an old CRT (at present, will be swapping) I also have a PS3 going through the Yamaha amp to the Panasonic.
I was thinking of distributing the 2x sky boxes and PS3 to 5 screens (2x downstair, 3x bedrooms)
by using a 4x4 matrix to keep cost down, and split one signal before it fed to the matrix.
The questions I have are how would I control the sky boxes at each screen?
Would I need lots of remotes and magic eyes?
Also, can two people watch the same output at the same time?
I know this is vague, but I am just starting to get my head round the issue.
