Hi all,

Looking for some advice on first fix for sky and freesat TV,

I've quoted a WF100 shotgun and a single to both bedrooms and lounge, plan was to run all shotguns to external point for Sky to terminate into LNB and fit amp and digital aerial for the 3 freesat points. Terminated in each room with a Dual SAT/TV/FM euro plate (RJ45 alongside)
However if they don't want to pay for multiroom and want to use the RF2 and magic eye set up is there enough cables or should i run an additional single from the lounge? presumably it goes back up to a splitter then down to the other 2 Tv's via on of the shotgun cables?

Thanks
