Thanks for the posts - Both worth considering.
I had thought I would have to run new and quite long composite cables all the way to the office from the PVR. But as it is, I still have the Cogeco coax running from the home cable entry point to the vicinity of the PVR. I also have another unused coax (was feed to cable modem) running from the same entry point to the office near to where we would put the TV.
If I brought cable in from dish, I could use short section of new outdoor wire and connect to the existing coax feed to office. Probably cleanest install if I can find a cheap receiver.
I don't have a VCR, but if I can find the modulator (need more info!), then I could use both sections of abandoned coax to also reach the TV.
I didn't understand use of modulator/VCR
- A small wire antenna came with the 630. Are you saying I should install that and then I can change channels from other room? Using same Shaw remote or another? In other words, what is a UHF remote
- If both TVs are on, would they both work normally? (or be on same channel?)
- Is it the modulator where channels 3/4 can be chosen to send out signal?
- This Princess Auto unit is Stereo
. Is that a problem seeing our TV is not?
Re existing wiring - It is RG-59 and was used for our Cogeco cable service (internet for one, TV for other). New Shaw wiring is all RG6.
ADDED: I found manual for modulator at The Source. http://downloads.thesource.ca/151/15...als/manual.pdf
Question: Our TV does have A/V input as well as coax for antenna. Not stereo - Just white/yellow. It was previously connected to HDDSR 600 using a two wire connector. How does two-wire connect to 3-wire A/V? Is modulator needed or is it just convenient to use it so existing wires can be used?
