    I have a direct TV Tivo Samsung 4080 DVR that is the primary hook up from Direct TV . The second is in a bedroom.

    1. Is there a way to branch off from these 2 tvs with out getting another direct tv $5.00 month box. As it is now I ran a RCA from the out put to a tv and can only watch what is currently on the tuner.

    2, if there is not a way is there a remote extender that will allow me to control the base unit from another room Like a Bose system does that uses FR rather then IR

    3. Im new to Direct TV is there a box that you can buy at a Radio Shack or other store that will act alone with out the Direct TV CO knowing.

    Thanks a bunch

    2) There have been a few posts recently asking about remote control extenders. Try the search feature of the forum. :)
