I have just bought a TV for the basement. The Bell receiver is a 2700 and is connected to the main floor TV with RCA cables. We connected the downstairs unit via co-axial cable to the back of the receiver but when the main TV is on, we get no signal to the basement TV. If we turn off the main floor TV, we get video downstairs. I'm fine with the fact that both TVs will have the same channel but can I have both units running?

Yes, all outputs are live all the time on Bell receivers.

It sounds to be connected correctly, RCA to Main Tv and Coax to downstairs only, so that is not the problem. I would be checking the Hydro feeds, as something here is most certainly odd. Could be that the Main TV is somehow feeding voltage out on the Coax.

Another problem

Thank you. Solved the problem by changing the setting from cable to air. The Samsung manual doesn't give you any information about which settings to use. But now, what kind of remote can we get so that we can change channels from the basement? The Bell 2700 receiver is on the main floor. I don't want to have to run up and down each time. Any help would be appreciated. Should mention that I live in Ontario just in case you recommend a store where I could get another remote.

You would need an IR blaster to control from another room.

As Hugh says you would need an IR blaster to do what you want with that receiver.

The 2700, is an old model and it might be almost as cost effective to look for a good used 5900 PVR, which comes with an UHF Remote, which would work from downstairs, before you buy the IR Blaster. Just an idea.
