I want to split my TV2 output to a 3rd TV and then buy another UHF remote. My question is how do I configure the third remote? Does it get the same settings as remote #2?

What is the best remote to buy and would you buy from Ebay?
The same as the TV2 remote that you already have would be far and away the easiest. You might seek out a later model if there's a device that the current remote can't control.

Not knowing that receiver we're talking about, I can't be more specific.

My receiver is a VIP222. Another question, can I split TV1 and still use a UHF remote?

yes but it requires you to UHF convert the first remote. That means having a UHF remote (model 6.3,6.4,and 21.0 only) with the proper tab in it. Also you can turn on the TV-1 on the remote distribution port (menu,6,1,5). The IF remote will still work BUT you need to have it on the same remote address as the TV-1 UHF remote.


P.S. Don't leave the address set to the factory default of one.
P.P.S. If you press #^ (^=up arrow) before you enter the address you will end up with an address 16 higher (example 4 + #^ = address 20).
