So I Have a Line run out to a Bedroom for a Standard DirecTV Receiver.
The DVRs use 2 Tuners to be able to record off 2 channels at the same time,
so they have 2 Inputs.
Do I need to run a 2nd line from the main Splitter, or can I just Split the
line that I've already run to the Room?
Don't know too much about Direct,
I have a Dish DVR. The nice thing is
that the 2nd tuner is RF controllable.
So, tuner 1 outputs video to the main
TV. I connected the RF out of tuner 1
(ch 3) and tuner 2 (ch 60 uhf) to a line
through a 2 set splitter, backwards as
a combiner that goes to an amplified
splitter and then distributed to all
I bought a boat load of the cheap Dish
RF remotes for all the
other locations. So, you can view and
control tuner 2 on channel 60 or you
can scab onto tuner 1 by dialing
channel 3 on the other TV. With 2 people
in the house, it works well.
yeah on dish to receiver seperate cables are REQUIRED for direct tv,
dish network does have a new splitter technology but its not
the 2 seperate output dish recivers with no mirror fee for the second
output is very nice:)
