Splitting Signal

I have two receivers a 505 and 605 and want to split the output from one receiver to other TV locations in the house ... how do I do this? It would be nice if there was a f-connector output.

The 505 has RF modulator CH 3/4 output.

The 605 does not, you need an RF modulator with it.

The 600 does have RF out, but lacks UHF remote.

You can split and send component or HDMI to other locations. I would consider getting a 600 for that other TV if that is acceptable.

All of the outputs on all of the SD receivers are active. So if you can pick one output for the local tv. maybe you could run another connection for the remote tv.

But given the cost of longer runs of some of these cables, as classicsat said, I would also consider getting 600 for the remote TV

Third time's a charm, and I agree as well that you should consider getting a 600 for the other TV - or check to see if your local Shaw retailer has any refurbished 605s for sale - they're anywhere from $49.99 to $69.99 at locations.

The costs associated with bringing the signal into another area (especially if you want to actually receive an HD image) will at minimum be on par with buying a new receiver and running a line. The up side to having a separate receiver in another location is that you will be able to watch different channels on each, rather than the exact same thing.
