When I replaced my 941 with the 622, I was able to remove a 508 from the system and serve that SD set with the 2nd output on the 622. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but I'd now like to replace the set which was served by the 508 with a HD unit; but, as we know, the 2nd feed from the 622 is only SD.
When I called Dish to see about adding a 211 to my receivers, I was told "it was impossible." I expectd a somewhat different answer to a question which would have given them more income, but all I got from the 1st responder was "that's the way it is." Theoretically, can't I sign up for DirectTV and get the equipment and installation for free? I realize that's not really practical, especially in my environment, but can anyone give me their views on how I might add a HD signal to another set in my house without the costs and confusion of creating a 2nd account. I don't even need it to be a PVR. I guess I might get something on eBay, but there's an installation and integration issue into my bill.
Before I "improved" my system, I just paid an extra $5 for the 508, which I owned.
The phone-answer-er at Dish said to check with Costco, Radio Shack or Sears. I checked with Costco, but wasn't able to get any worthwhile information, so I thought I check with this forum's enormous font of knowledge to see what to do.
I orignally thought that I could split the 2nd output from the 622 with a separator, and send it to the HDTV, but those who know better on this board quickly disabused me of that idea.
Sorry to go on so long, but I was wondering if there were any ideas to try.
