I would like to run my 4DTV signal about 50feet to my other A/V reciever a Marantz SR-880 that drives a Pioneer 510 TV. The 4dtv does have a 2nd set of A/V outputs that I can use. I would also like to run from my HDD200 (for HDTV) and it only has one set of outputs and it is a DB15 type for video and I can use the audio from the 4DTV. Do I need a Distribution AMP or something else to do this without losing any A/V quality? Thanks, Eddie
You need to use a video distribution amplifier. Extron makes a 1x4 or 1x2 RGB and a 1x2 or 1x4 HD 15 pin DA. They also make a 1x4 component video DA. These DA's will drive the signal about 100ft with good quality cable. If need be, you can also purchase an HD 15 to 5 BNC's to run the signal on the same DA. These products are very high bandwidth, so they will not degrade the signal quality.
