View Full Version : Splitting Signal for HDVR2 unit

02-19-2003, 09:54 AM
This may be a bit off the subject of "hacking" - my apoligies, but as you all probably know the new HDVR2 unit has two satellite inputs, so as to allow for recording one channel while watching another, and for "picture-in-a-picture" capability, etc.. All the sales sites for this product indicate that two separate coax cables need to be run all the way from the multiswitch (which in my case is outside) to the TV. Is there no other way to get around this?? How about a satellite signal splitter, or other splitter??? Please don't tell me to run coax the length of my house....

Well, for the most part, a second run is the only answer. That being said, there is an alternative, but a costly one. You can use a signal stacker setup which can combine two feeds on to one cable, but it isn't cheap. I believe a complete setup is in the hundreds of dollars.

FYI- I wouldn't post the same question in multiple forums. People tend to ignore those types of posts.
