EDIT: Sorry thread title should be "Dual DISH 722k DVR - Same Coax Diff Channel" - meaning, I have two 722k's.

So, I was sitting in my HT room and finishing watching a show I had recorded on my Dish Network VIP722k DVR. My wife came in and said she wanted to see who had won the "America's Got Talent" (no flames! ) finale. I looked, and it was not recorded. She, however, did have it recorded on the other 722k we have setup elsewhere in the house. (Long story short, under the package we were setup on, we were able to elect to have two "boxes" in the house, so I chose two 722k's.. and figured the extra DVR charge, and ability to record 4 Sat HD shows, and watch 4 programs simultaneously, was worth the extra 5.99 a month DVR charge, since the DVR units were gotten for free.)

Back to my question - I got to thinking, since we can output the SD signal on a great variety of channels, and since all my house is wired with cable (which I use today to distribute signals thoughout the house) couldn't I put the SD signal from both DVR's on the cable wire distribution thoughout the house, but just have them both on separate channels (e.g., one on 73 and the other on 60)? Then, assuming I can work the remote situation out, I can basically watch TV from either DVR in any room by changing the channel on the TV between 60 and 73....

Anyone tried this? Thoughts?

Thousands of experiments have conclusively proven that beating drums and clashing cymbals brings back the sun after a total eclipse.

In theory, this should work. I have never tried it. Go for it and let us know how it goes.
