    Situation:

    I have a Dish508 PVR reciever in the living room and a standard reciever in the bedroom.
    I want to be able to record on the PVR in the living room while watching a different channel in the living room. So I was going to use the other reciever for the "different" channel and control the receiver in the bedroom via a UHF remote.

    My attic is very accessable for dropping wire.

    How do I do this as easily as possible?
    Can I use a diplexer even though both signals are satellite?
    Do I need to run another cable in the wall from one reciever to the other?

    Any suggestions would be great.


    Thanks,

    I take it both are working properly now.
    The signal out of the bedroom xcvr can be split (Out to TV connector) into 2 ; 1 to the TV and the other to the Living room
    If the TV has 2 coaxial inputs put it in the 2nd input
    If not, get a A/B switch from Radio Shack and connect them to that
