    Have a spare TV in a rec room with no receiver hooked up to it. Want to feed it from an existing H24 receiver about 30 feet away. What is the easiest/cheapest way to do this? Both sets would not be watched at the same time. Thank you!

    If you're using HD then get a component cable. I bought a 50 foot one and it looked bad so I took it back and got a 30 foot one and it looks great. It was either the length or the cable that caused the bad quality, possibly both. Now to get the remote to work either use an IR remote or get an IR extender.

    Is the spare TV a HD or SD TV? If it's SD, a $13 Belkin modulator and a run of coax is all you need.
