I am thinking of getting Dish Network. I've never had satellite before. I will need 2 TVs in separate rooms hooked up. From what I understand, I will get 1 receiver to hook up the 2 TVs.

If the receiver is hooked up to a TV in Room 1, do you have to be in room 1 to change the channel in room 2? Or is there a box that would go on TV 2 to change channels?

I also have Tivo. If the Tivo is hooked up to the receiver in Room 1, can I watch my recorded Tivo shows in Room 2?

welcome :wave

If you get a dual tuner, the remote for room 2 is UHF, which you can control throughout the house
TV1 is IR which is line of sight to the receiver :)

The Tivo will work in whatever room you hook it up in.

Dish does have a dual tuner DVR which will work in both rooms, the 625.

This is something I wasnt aware of... I was considering getting a 522 and putting it in a closet and running it through the house for 2 channels of satellite...

nitstalker,

Many people do that. You will have to get an IR repeater or get a UHFPRO remote for tuner 1 to controll it though.
