Little background info. I want to send my Sky+ HD box signal to multiple rooms.
Currently I have a full subscription and multiroom. I intend to use the multiroom box in the conservatory. Done.
I then want to use the Sky+ HD box and split the signal to 3 TV's around the house, with each room having it's own remote.
I have the splitter on order, so this is all good and I know splitting the signal will work using the right kit.
What I do not know until it all arrives however is can you control the Sky+ HD box over HDMI?
So, the box will be in the cellar for example, I then want to have a remote in the 3 rooms I will be using it in and I need to know if the TV will take the signal and send it to the Sky+ HD box?
I know it works the other way, the Sky remote will control the TV over HDMI via the box...
I am going to try tonight to cover the box and try the remote on the TV but they are in the same room currently.
If this does work then it is good news! It means not having to buy the Magic Eye which would involve running even more cables around the house. I know you can buy HMDI IR Injectors but they are pricey and I would need 3!
