Can Joey mirror output of Hopper as slave?
Posted 23 March 2012 - 04:23 PM
Current set up is with two TVs and I often watch the same program on both, walking between rooms and changing the channel or pausing.
I know i can just tune Joey and Hopper to same channel but that wont work if one tv gets paused. Also wont work on recorded shows. I can also mirror the second TV off the Hopper with modulator or long component run, but pressing a button on the Joey would be easier.

That's a minor problem in our house since my wife will sometimes want to follow the show we are watching in the living room from the bedroom, with me handling the trick plays.

Not bad for pausing but if you're trying to do a frame pause to show something it needs improvement.
The good news is that the Hopper and Joey handle their own aspect ratio. You can watch the mirrored feed in 16x9 HD on one set and letterboxed on the other. No more skinny people on SD sets (unless one wants them).
