In March, 2012, I fried an RCA DVR 80 Series II TiVo box by letting it get too hot in my motor home. Since we were in the Los Angeles area I drove to WeakKnees and paid the $200 lease fee to get a THR22. I discovered that the THR22 does not have a coaxial RF out jack. Only HDMI and component video. The coach has a "box of many buttons" that allows configuring the two TV's in various ways. OTA, DVD, VCR, DBS, etc. to either or both of the TV's. It uses coaxial RG? cables only. There are no provisions for HDMI or component video and no practical way to install them.
We had a replacement SeriesII DirecTV TiVo at home and have since activated it and use it in the motor home as was done with the prior box. The THR22 was hooked up to a newer TV in our sticks and bricks home that has HDMI input and all is good again..
The question is; if at some point we must insert a THR22 into the motorhome configuration, is there some kind of converter box that will take the THR22's HDMI output and turn it into an RF signal on an RG? coaxial connector? The goal is to deliver the THR22's signal to the distribution box on an RG? cable - no more and no less. Less power consumption is better than more power consumption. We have ample power but generated heat is the problem.
