Unless you expect to have 6 different people are watching different shows on all 6 TVs then you might be better off just wiring one (or two) of your rec'rs to multipe rooms then buying an additional UHF remote to operate of those recr's (I believe that at least the Mits has a UHF remote). As far as doing the wiring runs you could just use regular RG59 (or RG6) to make it easier. If the rec'r doesn't output a modulated signal, then you can buy a cheapie modulator for like $10-20 that can take a composite input an modulate it to channel 3 or 4 (along with the audio).


I myself currently have one Dish Network box running to 4 televisions in my home. Since it's just my wife and I, it doesn't make sense to buy (and install) 4 STBs (and pay they extra $5/month fee).

you are the man yo ujust gave me an idea


yes the misti has an rf remote and ir i could just use the normal tv output off of the receiver and run it to the other room


i have some wireless a/v senders but to get it to normal composite video out you have to shut off hd and its a pain for other people to do that.


and yes hehe sometimes every tv is on and someone is watching something


sooo ill have to think about this a little more sine it would be a pain to run the wire less i go under the carpet and through a few walls



Thanks

yor oval dish will support 4 receivers as it will almost certainly have a 4X4 22KHz multiswitch. the third LNB position ( sat c ) is for the 110 satellite un less you are in NC there is nothing to be had from that sat.
