    you would need to upgrade to a hopper/joey system, or get another hd receiver.

    You can try an rf module but you can't connect a. Hdmi and run it from the reciever it only has 1 hdmi port on back for tv 1 and the reason they only use a coax is because after some many feet of hdmi the video quality decreases

    There are two ways to get hdmi connection on the second tv: either have a tech come out to move you hd receiver so tv2 becomes tv1 and vice versa, which would cost you atleast $50 or $65 for it or you can upgrade to a second hd receiver for that tv, which would require a new commitment and a tech visit which can be covered by getting the protection plan. You can upgrade to a regular receiver, which would just add an additional receiver charge on your monthly billing or the hopper/joey system, which would require a $100 upgrade fee and a monthly $10 dvr fee and a $7 a month charge per joey. For either of these choices, you can call 1-800-333-3474 and have them help you set it up.

    2ND TV VIA CABLE ONLY DISPLAYS DIGITAL PIC.
    YOU WOULD NEED A HD RCVR TO CONNECT HDMI TO TV.

    LOOK INTO OUR NEW SYSTEM, HOPPER AND JOEY SYSTEM.

    What you want to do is not possible our duo receivers don't have HDMI out for second tv if you want all your tvs on HD I sugest you to upgrade your system to a hopper Joey whole home DVR that way all your tvs will be on HD.

    U would have to have a receiver on that tv if u wanted a HDMI wire. That 2nd tv is only capable of hooking up coax. Sorry
