I ordered just a hopper install as I live by myself and wanted to mirror my 2nd and 3rd tv. They aren't HD and I barely ever watch them, just when I had my 612, I was able to mirror off the connection to those TV's. I was told by tech support initially that I'd be able to do this still, but my installer, who said it was his first hopper install, didn't know how to do it.

I was wondering if it's able to and if it is, do I need to do anything different with the connections? Again, I want whatever is playing on the main TV to mirror on the 2nd and 3rd SD tv's, ideally via Coaxial cable. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

You would need to put a Joey at the wiring box and connect it to a RF Modulator and then to a powered splitter. You cannot backfeed.

if you had a second coax line out from the hopper box, couldn't you also set an RF modulator there to feed the SD TVs?

i was considering experimenting with something like that.

Yes, if you had a second coax line at the Hopper location.

The Hopper has composites, you could connect RF modulator off it and run coax to other tv's. You don't need a Joey.

You can only do that if you have a 2nd coax line at the Hopper location.
