I am planning to move from sky to vm. I use magic eye to second tv form sky box using coax tv aerial cable. if i replace sky box with vm tivo how can I pipe tv from the tivo box over the coax aerial cable to the tv upstairs? Also it needs to be able to control the tivo as the magic eye does with sky over aerial coax.
None of Virgins boxes except for the very oldest models have RF outputs, so you will need an RF modulator connected to the Scart output of the TiVO. I have been using one of these (link) to drive a TV set in my kitchen for several years now, & it comes highly recommended.
I've never had the need to add an IR extender, but perhaps other contributors can recommend.

Thanks for the reply nodrogd - couple of additional questions re this 1) Does that allow me to use the remote control as well from second TV or do I need Marmitek PowerMid XL infrared extender set? 2) If I connect this to SCART on TivO can I also connect HDMI to the TV local to the TIVO?
