    Have a pair of Coax cables going to each room in a new build, along with two back to the attic to be connected to a satellite dish and aerial all terminating in a patch panel in a cupboard.

    Is there any way, I can put a single box in here, and have the channels piped along to each TV without having separate decoders at each TV?

    Most TV have satellite and terrestrial tuners built in so you might not need any set top box.
    Some set top boxes are very discreet as well.

    It may be possible to send video over coax but I'd say it will end up being messier than using a set top box
