My Dish receiver outputs signal from Tuner2 to my second TV over coax in the bedroom. Replaced bedroom TV with one having no coax input, so no more Dish. Any option besides 1. Run extra cable from receiver to Room2, or 2. paying monthly fee to get add'l Dish receiver (Vip211 & Vip411) to convert into HDMI? Maybe a <$50 converter from F Type coax to HDMI? Just need one-to-one...
 
Very strange that any service, providing their own tuner (outside of TV), will give you output signal on a coax UNLESS this is an analog TV (am betting the answer yes). If I am right, coax to hdmi converter, if even exist, will sux. Anytime you go to analog, your bandwidth decreases. So I would just tell service provider to give you another box with HDMI output. I wouldn't know why they would charge you anything extra. The world has moved to digital, all set-top boxes should output to HDMI and end of story.

So - the Vip722 gives a std (not HD) output for TV2 in another room, multiplexing it over the house wiring. Since I now have a much larger UHD TV in room2, even converting it will result in a very sub-optimal image. For an HDTV signal, I need another satellite receiver for room2, which is why there will be another $7/month on my satellite bill... If I had the newer Hopper, I'd use an appropriate Joey for this function, also resulting in a $7 upcharge on my monthly bill.
