New to the site/forum—great resource, knowledgeable posters. First post/question/issue--- Installing a new video surveillance system using 8 channel DVR (network compatible—video server) with video out for TV. We also have assorted Directv receivers (including HD DVR). Ideally I would like to stack the Directv receivers allowing Directv receivers to be available to any tv in the house without the necessity of a box at each set as well as incorporate the surveillance output on a designated channel on any tv in the house. Question(s) involve: the use of video modulators; do I need to match the modulator to the number of DTV receivers (example-6 boxes 6 channel modulator plus add for surveillance output)? My experience related to modulators is limited but have used a low pass filter however was advised DTV isn’t compatible with low pass filter—I thought I had a grasp on the project at the beginning but am losing confidence—advice?
