I have searched and read and now I am confused on the best way (ease of setup and cost to be part of this equation) to distribute my TiVO signal upstairs to other rooms.... I have cable lines going into the basement where all my splits are that eventually lead upstairs. I can easily pull a coax cable from the output of the TiVO into the basement. I could plug this directly into the line going upstairs, but then I lose regular cable. This, based on my research, tells me that I may need an RF modulator for the TiVO output, and then, I think, something that lets me "inject" the signal into the coax already going upstairs. I think I understand this and want to know the best and cheapest way to do this (while still retaining reasonable quality).... Then, onto IR. My understanding is there are two basic ways to handle this. I could use an IR extender system (which I already use to get signals behind wood doors) or could possibly "inject" the IR signal along the COAX line. I wouldn't mind the extender idea, but I don't know if I can safely put any more plugs into my outlets where all of the equipment is hooked up. Do all extenders sort of work on the same frequency? If so, would I need to hook up another "receiver" at the equipment, or would my current one pick up the signal from the added transmitter? Does brand matter in regards to this? Can someone please explain how best to go about this and recommend products. Thanks! ******************** My further reading has helped me out some. Please continue to make any suggestions in light of this..... First thing I need is a modulator...one channel is fine. For example, I found this one channel modulator at Smart Home for $65: http://www.smarthome.com/7715a.html or this Dayton Audio one from Parts Express for $40: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd..._ID=4368&DID=7 Then, I need a simple splitter/combiner, and then plug the modulator and regular cable signal onto the inputs. This then gets fed using my exisiting line up to my other TVs. Fine. Any suggestions on modulators? Also, one faq I read at smart home suggests putting an in-line amplifier into the line after/before the modulator. Will I really need to do this? This is mostly on our alternate TV in the bedroom and does not need to be top quality. Also while reading more at smart home, they talk about being able to add just a new transmitter (their pyramids) for the IR. The question, again, then is like I asked above, could I integrate a pyramid with my recoton IR system (do they work in the same RF freq.?).
