You could try lowering the channel number that is being sent to TV 2. I am an installer and when I come across this I will adjust the channel number from the default channel 60 to channel 25.

The higher the channel number the more signal loss you can have going through the cable. Lower channel numbers can travel through the cable with less loss.

In the menu you will find a place to adjust the modulator. Your owners manual will explain how to get to this option. On that screen it will most likely be on channel 60. Highlight the channel and push the channel button down until you come to a lower channel like 25. Then you may have to do a channel search on your tv so it will find the new channel setting. Hopefully it clears up your picture. If not, then you will know there is something wrong with the cable or fittings. It is possible the duplexer is going bad. That can cause your problem too. In that case you will need a trouble call.

Good luck.
