Helped my dad install his new system and ran into a question. 2 tv's, one receiver. The second tv is hooked up by coax from the "tv out." The second tv gets satellite reception fine on channel 3 (this is an older tv with only 1 coax input). However, when the main tv is watching satellite, or whenever the satellite receiver is on for that matter, I am unable to get local reception on tv #2. When the receiver is turned off local reception on tv #2 is perfect. As it is now if someone is watching satellite on tv 1, tv 2 will only be able to get the same satellite program but no local. Not what we had in mind.
I'm assuming I will need a switch of some kind to distinguish the two different frequencies. I was told at the electronics store that I would be able to get satellite on channel 3 and local channels just by turning the knob(!). I told you it is an older tv. Does somebody have an easy fix for this??
