My planned setup is a single ViP722 located near the family room HDTV and also feeding an upstairs bedroom SD set using Dual mode. I currently have a Slingbox and want to move it to the Dish setup. I need to feed the Slingbox from TV2, as this is the set that won't be in use when I want to Sling. A couple of questions about this plan:
1) The bedroom TV is about 60-70 feet point to point from where the 722 will be, but it's one floor and 3-4 walls away. (Frame house.) Will the included RF remote work adequately for this situation?
2) I've read about the IR converter that provides an IR signal for Slingbox control of TV2. But it's not clear to me if it is possible to hook this up so that the RF remote can still function at the same time. I'll need the RF control for the upstairs TV, and don't want to have to jiggle cables every time I might use the Slingbox.
Thanks in advance for your help.
