Re: the suggestion to deprecate analogue TV distribution around the house from a Sky box etc., it would be useful if a future generation of Sky+ HD box could generate a single channel 'Freeview' mux to pipe around the house; but I don't doubt the cost vs practicality metrics of an STB being able to encode a mux being anything other than immensely challenging - if STB manufacturers are even legally allowed to generate DTV muxes of their own as well as receive and decode them.

For now those with the luxury of a Ca5e/Cat6 link or two need to make do with something like the Octava HDCATS-100- HDMI which is stunning beasty (pricey too!) but it means I can get an HDMI signal with sound upstairs now that I've killed off RF out from my Sky+ HD box after 10 years of faithful service.
