Can I work another TV from my virgin RF cable

We are having a conservatory built and have virgin Tivo on our lounge.  As we do not have an external aerial, can we link a new TV using the RF cable for the Tivo box to receive freeview channels in the new room?

2 Options.

1 Use an external Aerial and use the built in Tuner of the TV. Sorry the Virgin Media cables do not carry any Freeview signals.

2 Get a second box (TiVO or the New V6) and have the same channels and the ability to watch recordings from the other box.


200Mb(SH2 SH2AC Hub 3.0), 2 X V6 TV XL, Phone M. 100Mb Business (Hitron Hub).

Freeview needs a rooftop or (if you are lucky to live near a transmitter) a set top aerial. 

Cable TV uses a different system & frequencies to Freeview TV. It is also encrypted and only legally receivable through an STB (TiVO or V6 box) rented from Virgin.
