I just got a SA 8000HD box and it works great with my HDTV downstairs. My problem is that for the life of me I cant get it to output Standard def to my TV upstairs. The onlyout put I could use is the ' Archive to VCR' or the Coaxial out.

I'm trying not to have to rent another cable box for my Standard Def TV's if I can. Is there any way to get this thing to output standard def?

Thanks!!

What's wrong with the coax to share?

I have the same HD box downstairs and I use the coax to go upsatirs (remote extenders to control box) and i get a very good picture that way?

Does the Coax output Standard def to your other TV's? All I get is a black picture from that output.

The SA8000HD doesn't support simultaneous HD and SD outputs. However the newer model SA8300HD does. Ask your cable company to swap for the newer model - it can output simultaneously a downconverted RF output on channel 3 at the same time as a HD output on the component or DVI output.
