Hey guys I'm so glad I found this site.Looked everywhere on the Dish site for some forums but had no luck.Anyways I'll say thanks for this site and now to my problem.

We took a deal with Dish Network for the DuoDvr 722 with one HD tv and one SD tv.The other week we finally bought a new HDTV for the living room.We already had one in our bedroom.The HD is going to the bedroom.But I want it in the bedroom and the Living room.Is there anything I can buy at RadioSHack or anywhere that will help my problem.Please help.

Thanks in advance

You basically have two options... run a long cable between the TV1 output and your 2nd TV (if your first TV is using HDMI, you can run a long component cable and visa versa). Included in this option is getting an HDMI/component splitter and splitting the feed, and using adaptors to take the HDMI to an ethernet connection, and back again on the other side. The downside off this is both TVs will have to watch the same thing.

If you want a separate HD signal in the 2nd room, you'll have to get another receiver.

Thanks for the help.So this leads me to another question.If I get another reciever,can I hook it up from the DuoDvr 722 like a converter.In other words can I take the coax going to the second tv and plug it into the second reciever then run an HD cable from the second reciever to the tv?Or will the second reciever have to have a card or something?

Yes, both HDMI and Component are active simultaneously. In this case both TVs will have to watch the same thing, since both are connected to the TV1 output.

No, that won't work. You need a line directly from the dish to the 2nd receiver.

You can add a 2nd HD receiver through Dish N It Up for $100 and then an extra $7 per month. That is the best option for HD on the 2nd TV.

The other option of running a long cable from the receiver you already have to the 2nd TV will work but will end up being a pain.

I feed HD to 4 HDTVs with a 622 & a 722 via 2 long HDMI cables from monoprice.com . No pain here.:rolleyes::)

IN my situation I have a 722k that is run by hdmi to my living room tv and by component to my computer room behind the living room. I can watch hd in both rooms , but it is the same thing. I also have by coax tv 2 run to my master bedroom to a up-converting dvd player . So I can watch my tv 1 or tv 2 in up-converted 720p hd in the bedroom. Soon the new sling media equipment will allow you to do tv 2 in hd on another tv. Using a "Tv everywhere "adapter and the hd media extender in another room. If you can wait till it hits market. You can see it on dish's website under sling. IF you can't wait you can add another 211k receiver in the other room and if you want you can pay $39.99 to DISH to turn it into a dvr, using your own external hard drive. I did this in my son's room so he can have a dvr and I didn't have to pay another dvr fee when they were still charging them per dvr receiver.

I'd sooner run component to the living room tv and a long hdmi cable to the 2nd tv. Seems to be a bit easier, neater installation and futureproofing as component will be retired long before HDMI ever will.
