I'm looking for some input as I try to decide how to feed HD to a second TV in my house. Currently I have an older HD set in the living room connected through component connections to my VIP622. I use the RF output to feed four other sets throughout the house. Since there are only two of us, we usually operate in single mode, with the same programing on every set. For Christmas, I'm replacing the bedroom TV with a new LCD flat panel. I would like to be able to view HD on the bedroom TV, without getting another HD receiver (and paying the monthly fee.) The cable run from the 622 in the living room to the bedroom would be about 100 feet. I'm considering two options: 1) Get a component video distributor ($50 at Radio Shack) and then get a 100-foot component cable from monoprice and feed component video to both TV's. Advantages of this idea include: -Component is reliable over long distances. -The distributor has additional connections for upgrading other TV's in the house later. Disadvantages: -Component cable is bulky and may be too big to feed through some of the openings along the path I would use to get it from the living room to the bedroom. -DRM may eventually mean that some HD programming may be available only via HDMI. 2) Get a 100-foot HDMI cable with a booster/equalizer, and connect it to the unused HDMI port on the 622. Advantages: -No distributor required. -Smaller cable should be easier to feed through house. -Best quality video and audio (if it works.) Disadvantages: -No expansion options for future growth. -HDMI is more finicky and the long run may not work - even with an equalizer. Finally - I got my 622 in March of 2006 - so I think it's a fairly early model. I've heard about the problems with the HDMI connector on the early 622's, but since I've never used HDMI, I don't know whether my connector will have a problem or not. If I do go with HDMI and end up having a problem, will Dish do anything to fix it (my 622 is a lease, but I don't currently have the protection plan)? So what do you think? Any input would be appreciated.
