If you want to have two tv's connected to one receiver, you can do that, but both tv's will show the same channel. The HD receivers have a UHF antenna, which allows you to use the remote in a separate room. You will have to buy a second remote for the other room.
1. You can connect 2 TVs to 1 receiver using different outputs (for example use DVI/HDMI for one TV and Component for another). You will see however the same program. If this is what you want and your receiver has an SD UHF remote, you can use this remote from another room.For the other TV you will need a second remote, can be standard infrared, if it's in the same room.Can be SD or for example another manufacturer (Logitech Harmony for example).
2. If you want to watch different programs on the TVs you need 2 separate receivers. Each receiver needs to have his own line from the dish (you can not split the input cable). You will have 2 remotes anyway in this case.
