Thanks for the reply. I've got an old tivo box that served as a receiver as well...........maybe that would be an option. I'll still have to think about it. That feature is a good option to have.carl6 said:No. All of the DirecTV DVR's have a single video output. If you want to watch the same thing on two TV's, you can feed multiple TVs from the DVR, but you can't watch different programming on them.
However, there is only one DVR charge per account, so you can add a second DVR to your account for the same cost as an additional receiver - $4.99. That way each TV can have it's own DVR. Other than having to run coax to the second location, that is probably the best option.
