    Ask Airtel to provide you secondary connection to your room.

    No...they charge something like 150 bucks/month for other connection apart from parent connection. You also have to purchase STB.

    arre bhai i m not asking about that!

    thats an add-on connection on the primary one!

    i want to split the one signal from the set top box to 2 tv's

    so that both the tv's can have the same channel , if u change the channel from the primary tv , channel will automatically change on the other tv as well

    i dont want 2 independent connections,

    just want to split 1 into 2 , so that i m atleast able to watch matches in my room when all in my family r asleep!!

    r u getting my point!

    in short i m not ready to pay-up for the other connection just for on-off viewing of only 1 channel- star cricket

    somebody please help!

    i know this is possible!

    and some of u might have already done that!

    Though I don't have any 1st hand experience, still try a splitter, this shall have 1 or 2 more outlets which would let you attach similar no. of T.V's.
    But from what I've heard, same programmes would run on all T'V's supplied with same STB.

    well sure u can do that,i do that in my big tv and airtel digital tv.i.e some of the channels i don't get in airtel i watch it from big tv and vice versa.
    now the easiest way, is to connect the tv closest to stb via composite and the one which is kept the farthest u can connect them via a regular RF cable or coaxial cable.
    alternately if ur tv has a monitor out aka tv out usualy its a composite out u can connect them to ur second tv composite In.

    the thing is my primary tv is a 30yr old sony tv which has no composite out. i connect it to my stb only with the RF cable - the single lead one ,

    not the one which has 3 diff color coded cables- the a/v cable.

    and the other tv in my room which is on the first floor also does not have a composite out

    i can connect only using RF

    now how to connect both,

    do i need a co-axial splitter for that or anything else!!

    Yes it seems Splitter is the only option available to you.

    Connect between RF Out of STB box and TV RF In.

    well then just get a splitter,but chances are that there will be a signal degradation,when both are watching.btw is it realy a 30year old tv:O since most sony tvs i know or atleast for me didn't last over 11years i.e offcourse without repairs

    HAve you tried addind a splitter after the set-top box. Should do the job.

    Sorry you have already done that while I was posting.

    yes added a splitter from the rf out of the set top box

    the splitter is like a 3 way knob,

    1 to receive signal out from the settop box and 2 outputs for the 2 tv's

    got the setup made from a local electronic store with normal cable wire all for 50 bucks!
