THANK YOU for all that info. I am without a doubt going to try this. We tried this weekend to get it to work and had no luck, we did not have the splitter though. It would be flat out awesome if we could choose OTA vs Satellite on any and all tv's
Now when you say about the channel 3 vs 4. How does this work with digi tv. Does that just take over 3.1? Also what if there is a local channel for 3.1?
Last questions, did you purchase another remote that has stronger RF? Or are you able to change the channel on the box from the bed etc?
again THANKS A TON
To receive email notifications you will need to go to the bottom of the thread - under "additional options" find "thread subscriptions" and use the pull down box to select "instant email notification". This needs to be selected on a thread by thread basis as far as I know.
We just got back from our Memorial day camp trip. Everything worked great except the HDMI splitter. It was working when I mocked it up using two 22" lcd's but does not work with one 22" and 32". I think I will need a powered matching HDMI splitter if we want a HDMI connection in the bedroom. The cable input worked with all TV's though - they could all choose sattellite or OTA. Channel 3 and 4 still exist on three different TVs I have tried - some TV's say 3.0 and 4.0. I guess if 3.1 were available OTA you would still receive it. Have not had the chance to try that yet.
In the travel trailer we mounted the satellite reciever to the side of the bed pedastal with the front of the satellite box aimed toward the living room. The remote works from either the living room or bedroom. It bounces off the floor in the living room even with the bedroom door shut and seems to work all the time. In the bedroom it reflects off the walls. Just need to be more precise in where it is aimed. In the 5th wheel it may be more challenging and you may need a RF remote. Play around with a few locations before choosing the final mounting location.
For the new wire I ran it under the floor and fished it up the wall. By pulling out the Concertone it was easy to get to the wall space. To run under floor the underbelly was loosened enough to be able to reach in and grab cables.
Good luck and let me know if you have more questions with my setup.
