We have a vip211 and want to mirror to another tv. We have a splitter. The 211 doesn’t have an extra coax to send out. Can you show me a picture of how we do the coax cable. We have antenna going in the vil211 from satellite. We have hdmi going out receiver. We thought we could run coax out tv that receives signal to splitter “in” and then hook other tv coax to the “out” of the splitter. This doesn’t work

If one TV is on HDMI, just run a cable from the TV set out to the second TV which must be on channel 3 or 4. Coax connection will be SD, not HD.

To connect more TV's to TV set out you would need a splitter.

Just use a short pigtail of of coax from the out to TV then place a coax two way splitter at the end of the short pigtail and run cables to two TVs. This signal will be SD. The receiving TV must be on either channel 3 or 4 IIRC.

If you want HD to both TVs use an HDMI splitter and HDMI cables or you can also do HDMI to one TV and SD with the coaxial cable to TV#2.

Is the receiver a VIP211Z ? If it is there's no coax out to tv and you will have to use the HDMI splitter or the RCA jacks

If the second TV is far enough away that you do not want to run RCA cables, or if it does not have an RCA input, then you can use an RF modulator to convert the RCA output to a coaxial output.

I use an HDMI transmitter/receiver which works fine but is a little costly. There are RCA to coax converters that are less expensive but require cabling.
