I have a DTV HR700 in my office and I am trying to send the signal outside to 2 more tv's.
Right now the HDMI output of the DVR is connected to the office TV (Heiar 39: LED) via HDMI.
I have the component out going to this
Radioshack distribution amp.
I have a 75 foot component cable connected to output 1 running out to my Florida room, where it plugs in to this
Output One goes to an RCA 32" LCD about 1 foot away.
Output Two goes to a 32" Panasonic Plasma about 15 feet away.
The audio jacks of Output Four go to a stereo receiver about 10 feet away.
The RCA TV can not seem to hold the signal. When ever a show switches to a commercial, or the screen is trying to show a lot of white, it flakes out and goes black.
Sometimes it will come back with a black and white picture, then go out again. Does not matter if it is a HD channel or not.
When this is happening with the RCA TV the Panasonic screen get's a little flaky, but never goes out completely.
Neither TV looks like it is HD, but the RCA TV shows 1080i when I hit the info button.
I really do not know what else to try. I did not think the signal would deteriorate so much on a 75 foot run.
The only thing I have not tried is switching the distribution amps, so the RS is outside and the Amazon amp is inside. The specs for the Amazon amp
say it can handle a 150ft run.
/Both of the outside TV's are hooked to a large OTA batwing antenna and the picture looks great. But they are about 5 seconds ahead of the inside TV's hooked to DTV DVR's.
This does not work good for live sporting events, like the superbowl.
