    You can buy things such as these from argos - http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/st...mit=GO+%3E

    Only thing is, you change the channel on both tvs

    It's 4.98*

    If you just want to be able to see the same thing then you just need to run an ariel from the back of the sky box to the TV upstairs.

    If you also want to be able to control it from upstairs then you will also need a sky link (http://www.amazon.co.uk/SKY-TV-LINK/dp/B0013JB236).

    If you want to be able to watch seperate channels then you have no choice but to go for multiroom

    I'd imagine that something along the lines of this should fit your needs.

    No way round it unfortunately, even if you did cable the house you would still have to pay for an extra multiroom if you wanted all the channels you currently have in your sub. You can't just move the card from your main box to another box either as it has to be paired up to work.

    I think only way round it would be something like running your main sky box into a PC and setting that PC up as a wireless media server, then having a 360/PS3 or Media PC hooked up to a TV in each of the rooms you wanted to use it. Downside to this though is that you will only be able to watch one live channel at a time round the house. You could record stuff though and access it as and when you wanted to (kind of like using the plus service).

    I was debating moving the sky box upstairs all together so i think a video sender would work!!
