I wonder if anybody has any knowledge/experience in sharing an input and output line from the Huges HDVR2? The reason I ask is because we have a fitness room where we would like to view our Tivo'd fitness programming. The fitness room has coax running to the outside of the house. However, I don't want to run another line out of my TV room, because it means drilling through 9" of concrete.
So, I had this thought. I would take 3 bi-directional splitters. Lets call them splitter 1, 2, & 3. If I were to place splitter 1 on the output of my receiver, one output goes to the TV, and the other output goes to splitter 2. Splitter 2 is connected to one of the lines coming into the the receiver from the multiswitch, and to the line going into the receiver. Now, we go outside. Splitter 3 is connected to the line coming out of the house that splitter 2 is connected to, and it is also connected back to the multiswitch and to the line that goes into the Fitness room TV.
So, basically we have one of the lines coming in from the dish sharing the digital signal from the dish (signals from the receiver to the dish too), and the analog output from the receiver.
Sorry to be so long. Will this work? Moreover, do I risk frying my equipment?
