    When splitting the RF out to the TV on the receiver, will pretty much any splitter work, or should I be looking for something specific?

    pretty much any one. If you are talking about splitting the RF out on the Reciever going to the ant. In on a TV.

    Yeah, the RF input on the Tv. No specific frequencies or anything?

    Since there is NO RF output from the H/HR- 20/21, I hope you're not posting about them.
    OTA can be split to your TV and H/HR-20. Your TV will tune to what ever channel it's capable.

    Actually, that can be fixed with an RF Modulator, but no, I'm just talking about an R15. Has the RF antenna for the remote, and Grandmother just wants to be able to occasionally watch tv in the bedroom.

    You might also order her an rf remote and set the R15 to use the RF remote. That way she can control it whichever room she is in.

    Does ordering an RF remote extend your commitment another 2 years?

    I doubt the remote is considered "advanced equipment", so no.

    As far as splitting the RF out from an older D* receiver, I have an old RCA unit that feeds every TV in my house (4) other then my HD set. I have RF remotes for this unit so it's no issue controlling it from anywhere in the house. Some of the set farthest away from the receiver have signal boosters on them. Also there is only myself now, so squabbles over channels isn't an issue.
