    Splitting coax line

    I have a Hopper 3 with three Joeys. Total four TV are hooked up. Is there any way I can split one of the coax lines off to run straight to another TV that is in the bathroom. I used to have a VIP722K and it worked just fine.

    Hopper Upgrades

    I would like to upgrade. I configuration is I have a Vip622 for my TV and the kitchen. And a Vip722 for the bedroom and the spare bedroom. My wife watches and has her own programs so I would not want to interfere with her watching. What would be my best configuration?

    SD versus HD

    Thanks for quick response. No trees in way. satellite 119 is 65, 110 is 41, and 129 is 45. Channels keep switching from HD to SD on 110 and 129 and I can't lock in 129.

    SD versus HD

    Just recently when go to watch my local channel and some cable channels, the TV switches from HD to SD "signal loss on HD channel, tuning to SD equivalent." I go to my point dish and it is on satellite 110 with a 44 signal. I switch to 119 and I get a 66 signal. But it won't stay on the 119...

    Intermittent Running of VIP722

    Approx. 2 or 3 times a day my wifes VIP722 will begin running on it's own. Not the reboot running but a low hum in the background (no lights). It takes a soft reboot to end the hum. It bugs her and in turn I must get bugged. I'm sure you understand. I have the software reset set for 0900...

    missing channel?

    I have a question. I have a 942 and a 322. Yesterday (10/30) and today when I try to watch channel 13-01 or 13-02 on my 942 I get the screens stating the signal has been lost. Yet it shows 100% reception. These are being received by an OTA. I receive 10-01 and other OTA channels just fine...

    942 powering Preamp

    I was looking at that antenna too because of the rotor capability. Does anyone else have any luck with the above WA-950? I'm using the Stealth and the locals come in pretty decent. I'm about 30 miles from the main source.

    Qualify for more than 1 RSN?

    Thank you for the response. Their ads are misleading. At first glance it looks like you can get all of these FSN channels from all across the country. Where in fact all you get is local stuff which you had basically already. It would be nice to sit down and view games in other areas since...
