I recently changed from an old 18" single LNB. I understood that we were swapping out the dish only.. but when the tech came over, I ended up getting a new HD DVR and dish.
I would like occassional TV in an adjoining (close) room. I don't want or need the 2nd set up all the time. I would be willing to disable the main room TV and use the 2nd one only when I want to if that is how this ends up. No other TV watchers around here.
My idea: connect to the 2nd room by running a new length of proper high performance co-axal from the #2 SAT portal on the new DVR to the 2nd tv room. Will that work or must I get into splitters,etc...??.. I am thinking to just run the cable out the window (5" from current DVR) on back deck about 16' into the 2nd TV room window and bam!
thots, ideas, etc wd be much appreciated...! Jan.
