I don't have VIP622 yet but just reading bits and pieces on it on its cabling requirement, etc.

Say.. how do you guys solve the problem when the UHF signal is not
strong enough to reach a room where the 2nd TV is located?

For example, the main TV (HD) is in basement family room.

My 2nd TV is in master bed room (2 floors up).

Between the family room and master room, there is the main (1st) floor to a living room
but I have no TV or outlet there.

That's how the tech set-up our boxes with TV2's. Works great.

I just recently reversed the connections back to the normal method on my 622 only to minimize needed splitters as I added OTA to the single cable running from home distribution to box. While my remote for the upstairs TV2 is now spotty, I rarely use it.

hi guys -

i didnt realize that you could combine the 2 signals (remote & tv) like that?

fyi - i use the modulator in the 622 to send signals from tv1 and tv2 throughout the house

i also had trouble from a lower level location for the 622 and i took a run of rg6 from the 622 to the stairway and put the antenna on it and it worked up 2 stories.

i have access to the back of the wall in that area and plan to put a remodel box in the stariway and a coax face plate and screw the antenna in there.

also, if you have rg6 runs throught out the house that are not being used, you could use a spare one to get the signal up higher in the house.

good luck!
