    U need a wire coming from the 722 receiver going to the 2nd tv. There is a port behind the receiver that says 2nd tv, From there u take the wire(RG-6) to the back of the tv and connect. Ur tv will be on channel 22,60,73 or 116. U may also have to do a auto search to pull in the channel.

      This can be complicated to do ur self. The way I showed u is one way. There's also another way that could be easier. U would need a diplexer. If u would like I can talk u thru this if u want me too. Just let me know.

    A direct cable from the receiver to the TV2 location is easy. If you need a diplexer it gets more difficult and you might want a technician.
