I'm about to pull the trigger on the TurboHD package and drop D*. Dish just announced Local HDs in my DMA. D* has been promising me for 2 years that I was getting it soon.
Here is my question:
I have three TVs. I have an HD TV, and two SD TVs. I'm going to get the VIP722 HD DVR and hook up one of the SD TVs with the RCA outputs. I've read some bits of info here that some folks use a distribution module to split the RCA output to several SD TVs. I'd like to do this. What type of distribution module do I need, and can I get it from monoprice? If I go this route, I assume both SD TVs will have to watch the same program? Also, can you get a 2nd UHF remote for the other SD TV anywhere?
EDIT: One additional question. Does the Dish installer run the RCA cables to the SD TV, or is that up to the subscriber? If up to me, that's fine as I'll just run three RG-6 Coax Cables (already have two to that TV) and buy some Coax-RCA ends. If the Installers do it, how nice of a job do they do? Do they run the cables in the wall and put an RCA wall plate behind the TV, or is it a 'dirty' job?
EDIT2: Forget the last question as I see an Agile Modulated Coax Output is used, so I assume they hook RCA out of the DVR to this modulator that splits it to Coax to send to the SD TV, which is good. So, my only question is out of that Modulator, how is everyone splitting it to take the signal to several SD TVs? Can you use a normal splitter, or another type of distribution module? Is it something you can get from Dish, or if not, as mentioned earlier, can you get it from monoprice?
