Satellite

I have DIRECTV satellite in standard def. What I am looking to do is use one D12-1100 receiver and work it in both the living room and bedroom. It is an IR capable receiver only as per DIRECTV themselves. What I would like to do is mount the receiver in the pass through and have it work both TV's without any additional coaxial cable. if it was an RF receiver it would be easier I know. I do not want to carry that big dish out with me. I have been using my old 18" round dish for years out on the beach and it worked fine for one TV. Now I want to do that with two TV's. Any ideas would be appreciated. Links or picture are great too. Thanks in advance. Forgot to mention that the tv in the bedroom is ceiling mounted so no place to add a box and I would rather only have one only anyway. Don't need to worry about both TV's have the same thing on at the same time. Just the wife and me. We either in the living room or bedroom. Not both at the same time.

Don't know if this will work. You TT is probably wired for cable in both living and bedroom. Try hooking Sat box and dish to the cable circuit. Be sure to turn off the cable line booster. You may have to select the program channel you want to watch from the location where the the sat box is located.

This is what I use to send my Sat signal to the TV in my Bunkhouse as well as to the TV that mounts on the exterior of the TT

Amazon.com : ImageŽ 4 Channel Wireless Audio Video AV Transmitter Receiver with IR Remote Extension Wire (Black) : Audio Video Remote Control Extenders : Electronics

also use this to change the channel on my direct tv box from anywhere including outside. And it also lets me put my Direct TV tuner inside a cabinet completely out of site.

The remote does not work with just first part of your message? You need both devices to make it work?

Yeah it would work with the first one. But to be able to tuck everything away and be able to go through walls I use the second one.

I also found on the tv signal transmitter the it seemed weak. But signal strength for audio video works flawless.
