I currently have a 2 room DTV setup. We just put a treadmill and weight set in a spare bedroom, and now want to get programming in that room. What is the best way to get programming w/out buying a new receiver? Is there a way to split the signal? Keep in mind that this particular room has NO EXISTING outlets. Thanks

The easiest way would be to find a wireless video sender (on the 2.2GHz band), next would be to run a coax cable from one receiver to the new room (splitting this off the RF output).

Well, there are a couple of options open to you:


1. Get an additional receiver and pay the $5 mirroring charge per receiver. Since you have a 2 room setup you will also need a multiswitch. This lets you get different channels on each box simultaneously. This may not cost much more than the other options.


2. If you are using the video outputs to connect to the TV in one room, take the RF out and connect it to a cable and run that cable to the room where you want to get programming. If you are using the RF out, get a splitter and split the output signal from the receiver. If you don't want to run cables, get one of those transmitter/receiver setups, commonly known as a "video sender". You will also need a remote extender if the receiver is not in line of sight. Bear in mind that two out of the three tv's will always have the same channel tuned if you use this setup.
