    Now might be a good time for experienced dealers/technicians to post diagrams for whole house distribution systems

    I use a VIP612 with an output on SDch3 combined with a SC3 signal combiner. The SC3 combines OTA with ch3 so I can watch satellite or OTA in 7 rooms, without additional receivers fees. I have DVR on CH3 in all 7 rooms and HD only on the 55"TV at the 612. I do have OTA HD in all 7 rooms so that includes FOX, NBC,ABC & CBS. That is cheaper than DISH's hokey DVR fees and outrageous additional receiver fees.

    Mine is a variation on what I've had since I first started with Dish - I have ChannelPlus 3025 Multiroom modulator which I pass OTA AND NTSC modulated A/V output from my satellite reciever. In the past, when I had a satellite DVR (a 625) - I used a combiner/ splitter feeding the antenna input. Works great !

    I bought a RF modular that out puts on channel 4 for Joey One in Room One

    and a other RF Modualtor that outputs on channel 60 for Joey Two in Room Two.

    I then combine them using a VHF UHF combiner and send that Coax to 8 other TVs.

    I then bought extra remotes on ebay at half price.

    I am in a situation where I am looking to add a projector to a recently finished home theater. The room has no tv service right now and I would like to know how I can use my current service to supply HD television to the projector. Right now I have one VIP722 supplying service to 2 TVs. The signal will need to come to a Yamaha AVR. Is it possible or do I have to pay for another receiver?

    Oh, and OTA HD is not an option.

    josh22, might be best to start your own thread and add more detail....

    Is your Yamaha AVR HDMI capable?
    How far is your installed 722 from this HT room?
    Do you want to be able to watch something different in your HT room from the 722 location?

    There are lots of details that need to be sussed out to give you decent direction. Personally, I would want the HT room to have its own HD receiver.

    Yeah, I don't want to hijack so I'll start my own.

    Thanks.
