Hi, I have an HR-24. I'd like to split the signal using and HDMI splitter. TV #1 is right next to the box and will require a short (3 foot) HDMI Cord. TV #2 is relatively close as well and will require a 15 foot cord. I have 2 questions: 1. Since the cord runs are fairly short. Will a passive HDMI splitter like this one do the trick? Or will I need a powered HDMI splitter? Or should I use a switch in reverse for best reliability (I've read that switches can be used in reverse)? 2. Since TV #2 will be in a room away from the HR-24, will I need to get an RF remote, or is the remote that came with the HR-24 RF capable? (I can't seem to figure that out). Thanks so much!
