Hi all, hopefully I can verbalize what I am trying to do so I can get an answer back. This will probably be wordy! So I might try to draw a vizio and attach if I confuse everyone!
Currently I have Dish TV running basic channels. Haven't cut the cable completely but the bill is $14 per month and includes DVR so the wife is happy.
The satellite is connected to my HD Dual Tuner VIP622 in the basement and we have the RF remotes. I split this via existing COAX through out the house so all TVs can get the two channels. We only have a smaller 35" 780 LCD or older CRT Tvs so SD was fine over COAX. Over the winter I picked up a non working 62" HD Mitsubishi Rear Projector at no cost and replaced the bulb (that was all that wrong with it!!). Now SD at 480i sucks on it
so I want to make a change in the setup using the existing cable runs and there I think is where I will run into trouble due to frequencies and interference.
I would like to move the HD Dual tuner to the room with the 62" TV, currently the satellite run terminates in the basement, so I would put a 2-way splitter at that end and continue the compressed signal to the Tuner to the outlet where tuner is, place another 2-way splitter between outlet and 'tuner in' port. Then run HDMI out to 62" TV, and then coax out from 'tuner out' to 2-way splitter and back over existing run to basement where that 2-way splitter already sits. From there attach the current setup to that spare port and continue to push SD out to the other TVs.
So the crux of the matter here is this:
Can I run over one coax cable the compressed signal to the tuner and then the uncompressed SD signal back out to house? Will this by itself cause frequency issues, also as the satellite will be connected to the 2-way splitter that sends out the compressed signal but then receives the uncompressed signal will that cause issues going back to the Dish?
If this cannot work I can fairly use a different run in a room that abuts into the family room, but as there is cement foundation I have to work around I would rather not. Lastly worst case I could always run the dish to the family room and come in through the siding.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
