Can somebody advise me please if this will work? if so, how do I connect it all up please ?

I currently have Sky HD in my lounge with sound via a Panasonic

sound surround system. HDMI from the Sky Box to the TV and audio

out from TV to Sound Surround system, everything works fine.

I would like put an HD Projector (Optoma HD600X-LV)in the room next to the lounge to use

as an alternative to watching Sky Sports in the lounge. I currently have a second TV

(on the house ariel) and an Onkyo TX-SR307 AV Receiver in the spare room.

If I drill a hole through the wall from lounge to spare room, the distance from lounge Sky Box

to the Onkyo AV system is about 1 and 1/2 M,s and the Projector will be 3- 5 Metre's away

from the Sky box.

How do I connect the spare room audio and Sky HD up please?

Thanks

Simply use one of THESE . I have my main TV in the Lounge and another in the kitchen/diner and run a 5M HDMI under the floorboards to the 2nd TV and it works 100% with no HDMI handshake issues or picture degredation so can't see why this wouldn't work for you.

Presumably you still need to run an RF cable for a Magic Eye to change the channel though?

Yes or you can use a set of wireless RF transmitter/reciever which is how I have done it.

Thanks for the advice

The HDMI part sounds good to go how about the audio though?

Can I come out of the Sky box Audio out, through the wall and into

the CBL/SAT plugs on the 2nd AV Receiver using std Audio RCA cable?

Thanks

Yes that'll work, in stereo, but I've got a feeling you're only getting stereo now anyway, Sky doesn't send 5.1 surround sound over HDMI, it'll only do that out of the optical/coaxial digital output. If you aren't using that you could take a digital cable from the Sky box straight to the second room AV receiver.
