Question about DISH Network ViP622 DVR DTV Receiver / 180-Hours Video Recorder
I have a dish network dvr. the tv down stairs is hooked up directly,and the one upstairs is hooked up wireless. can i add another tv upstairs. I don't mind if the third tv matches the same channels as downstairs
Your upstairs tv is connected via a coaxial cable and you can do a few things to get programming to the third room.
The first is to locate the wire that enters the upsairs room that currently has tv and insert a splitter by cutting the line to that room and running the out ports to the rooms and the in port to the other end of the wire that you cut. This will give you the same picture in both rooms.
If you have a system that does not use diplexers to backfeed the second TV you can backfeed the 3-4 cable going to the TV1 by cutting the line and adding a splitter with the inport running to the 3-4 port on the receiver and one of the out ports going to your tv1 and the other outport going into the UHF side of a diplexer. You will need to cut the Satellite feed into the back of the receiver on the back side of the seperator and connect the seperator to the SAT port of the diplexer. The IN/OUT port of the diplexer will connect to the end of the sat feed cable that goes to the wall plate. This will allow you to go into the attic of outside of the house and find the sat cable that feeds the TV one and break it there and put the IN/OUT port of that diplexer facing the TV1 room and the SAT port connecting to the other end of the cable you broke. The remaining UHF port will be the feed for the new room that you wish to connect. This set up will allow for viewing the same program as that at the TV1 location however you will need to change the channels at the TV1 location or buy an IR to UHF converter to allow you to be able to work the system independently from the receiver. Hope this answered your question. IF you need further assistance please contact me and thanks for using Fix Ya.
