Using an IoGear HDMI transmitter to feed a remote TV
« on: December 18, 2015, 08:39:02 PM »
Hi everyone. we added Dish to our Minnie but didn't have a way to get the signal to the bedroom TV. Since our Tailgator only supports one receiver, I couldn't go that route. I'm using an IoGear HDMI transmitter. It hooks to the Dish Reciever and the Blue Ray player in the front entertainment cabinet. A small Reciever plugs into the HDMI port on the rear tv. Both units need power. Turn everything on, wait a few seconds for the Reciever and transmitter to sync and bang, full 1080 on both TVs.  So far it's working pretty well. Some times I don't have any sound on the second TV, put its fixed by turning the tv off and on. This allowed me to hook both TVs to the antenna so I have both Dish and Local by switching the TV input.  A little pricey, but cheaper than a whole new Dish setup.

Thanks for the report. I've been considering that myself as a way to get HD to a tv which now has only old SD wiring (composite video signal).

You can buy a HDMI powered splitter, it goes  between source (Direct TV box or whatever) and the primary TV, then run an HDMI cable to the 2nd TV, but make sure you have a good quality HDMI cable and not too long of a run.  Also some HDMI splitters will list how far they are good for in feet or meters. Obviously both TVs will be watching the same program with this setup.
