I am trying to watch dish network on 2 tv's by using only one dish receiver (which means without paying for a second receiver. I am ok with watching the same dish network channel on both tv's at the same time. My dish network is wired this way: coax cable from dish into dish receiver (VIP211Z), also, red yellow white audio/video cables from receiver to an old SD tv, the receiver doesn't have an output connector, only a single input connector. I tried splitting the signal by using a conventional cable splitter but can't get a signal. When i connect the coax cable from the dish into the splitter and then into the receiver I get no signal on the tv. Do i need a special "satellite TV" splitter of 2.3GHz or higher that works with satellite tv, or some other device? Would I be able to buy my own dual tuner receiver and split the signal to multiple tv's, or does the receiver need a smart card provided by dish network? Some help would be greatly appreciated.
