VIP 722K TV1 to TV2
Posted 21 July 2010 - 04:05 PM
My TV1 is in the bedroom (HD), I need to find out if I can, and how to make my TV2 HD and leave TV1 SD.
Is this possible without running any more wires?

Your 722K has 2 HD outlets, a HDMI out, and a component out. The are both "TV1" and they both will show the same program.
You have additional composite/rca audio outputs for TV1 and TV2, they are SD. There is also a rf (cable) output which is SD.

As long as there is a single coax from the dish to BR and another single coax from BR to LR, you can use a pair of diplexers to carry the dish signal from its present location in the BR to the new location of the 722k in the LR via the diplexers and also bring the home dist from the 722k (now) in the LR back to the BR via that same diplexer pair.
There are other wiring situations where you could relocate the 722k from the BR to the LR that wouldn't require new wires, but I'm not sure you are asking about relocating the 722k. If you leave the 722k in the BR and want HD in the LR, you will have to have HDMI, Component, cat5 and balums, ... from the BR to the LR. The installer could have use diplexers to get the dish signal to the BR and brought the home dist back to the dish and added coax to the LR to carry it to your 2nd TV. The 722k could be reloacted to the LR and the diplexer pair moved with it.
You need to clarify the goal and identify where the 722k is presently located.

ps: I was at a house today where DIshnet had just done an install. They said there was a short in the HO's wiring. THey connected a 625 w/ 1 coax, an using a diplexer to feed tv2 signal to the Rec. Well I tested the cable, the cable was fine, I took out their diplexer's (which oddly enough were 2 different brands) an viola, signal came thru. Short my ass! I back feeded the TV2 signal on the 2nd coax at the recever location. Took me all of 10 mins to figure this out, how can E* installers be so stupid??
