Thomson dsi 4200 satellite receiver

I have currently got satellite tv in the living room and want to also have it in the bedroom. The receiver connects to the tv in the living room by scart lead but there is a "video" socket on the receiver at the back. Could I take a cable from this to the tv in the bedroom ? There is a "video" socket in the tv in the bedroom. Please help. Any solution would be greatly appreciated.

The only way this would work ( and this applies to any form of cable/satellite box) so the only way this works is if the TV that has the satellite connected to it has a video output normally indicated with the color yellow, but you still need sound that normally is the red and white (RCA cables). So the first tv needs to have video and sound outputs and the TV you want it connected to needs to have the video and sound inputs. depending on the distance between the 2 TV's this might prove to be rather difficult. it would be easier to run the coax cable from the main satellite box to the room where you have the 2nd TV however to do this you would need to move the satellite box back and forth. Hope this helps

Hello! Daniel Busa with Dish Network here! Most likely your reciever is using our record plus feature. This sets the record default to always being on tv1 or always being on tv2. To fix this hit menu 8-5 go to disable hit select, go to done hit select delete the timer and set it up again.

Brought new tv for bedroom freeview inc..set up

If you have got a good aerial, the high gain type- see image, it should run all the TV's you say. Make certain you have decent cable coming off the aerial (the stuff they use for satalite dishes). Then buy some high quality splitters, to feed the TV's. Don't split the cable outdoors!

You will need to split the signal with a 900mgz splitter between the living room and other room. if your pic is fuzzy you have a bad splitter or bad cable, try replacing these one at a time and it should clear up. If your getting a sat pic but ti is fuzzy its for sure in the line somewhere fro teh splitter.

Comcast remote does not work after dark, works just find in day

I have had the same problem I have two bell receivers one in the bedroom and one in the living room, in low light the remote in the living room would work much like yours, but if I took the same remote into the bedroom it worked fine in low light, the second remote responded exactly the same, the problem in my situation was the TV had a light sensor that adjusts the picture depending on the light in the room, with this option turned off. The remote works just fine in low light situation.

If you have a dual tuner it is in sigle mode. Go to the front panel on the receiver and press the mode button. This may be behind a push open door based on the receiver you have. If this does not work let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

RF module related to Direct TV.

yes you can but the 2nd tv wont be in HD. The modulator can be purchased for any electronics store. what it does is turns a composite video signal (yellow, red, white cables) into a coax (screw in cable). it has an composite input that you would connect from the receiver and a coax output that you would connect to the other bedroom tv.
