    I have a VIP622 in my house with TV2 connected out in my unattached garage 25' away via coax cable. I want to connect TV2 to the stereo system I have out there but need some kind of audio connector to do this. Is there some way to do this? My stereo receiver has no coax connector on it.
    Thanks,
    Snyde

    Couple of options -

    If your garage TV2 has red /white analog outs - use them. Or maybe an old VCR - the tape part doesn't need to work - just the tuner and the outputs for audio.

    if it doesn't - you need to pull 2 cables going from the 622 TV2 red/white outputs to the garage into the stereo.

    Does your TV2 have composite inputs? If so, then do what I did. Get some long composite cables from monoprice.com. I bought a 25' set for my set-up, and they have longer. The cables are made out of RG59 or RG6, depending on what you want to spend. Connect the yellow to your tv and the red/white to your receiver. Other wise you can just do audio out from the tv, like scooper mentioned. You can also connect long lengths of red/white cable to just the reciever if your tv doesn't have audio out or composite in. I don't like the vcr option myself. Adding another component creates another place where something can fail.

    One other thing I just thought of that may affect your decision. Does the VIP622 output stereo from TV2 coax? Most cable boxes don't output stereo from coax and the VIP622 might be the same.

    Hey Scoop,;)
    That's a great idea, and one I should have thought of.:eek: It gives me something to do with a VCR besides using it for a dust collector. :smoking:
    Brilliant!!
    Thanks,

    These are some fun projects. I have a 722k and I have RG6 connected to several sets throughout the house. I can watch TV1 or TV2 content at various places in our home. Also, I have ran some cables to a box in the basement of the home and then into the home intercom and a low power FM transmitter. That way I can select one of the following:

    -Home Computer Audio

    -Internet Radio Audio

    -Zenith DTT 901 Converter Box Audio

    Since it also is sent to an FM transmitter, I can pretty much tune the FM audio on 87.9 mHz anywhere in the house, attached garage, detached garage, or horse barn and listen to whatever is selected.
