2 TV's off single direct tv box

What is the best way to split the signal from my living room to the bedroom without buying a second directv box? I just want to use the living room receiver in the bedroom at night.
I tried a rca to coax converter out of the direct tv and plugged it into the cable but I only got 480i resolution and it was real fuzzy. I am maxed out on receivers on my account so adding another receiver isnt an option.

If you have HDMI out of the DirecTV box, an HDMI switch with input and two outputs sgould work. I use one to put my conputer screen either on the monitor or om the TV.

Best way? Get a HR44 or HR54 Genie and a mini genie this will get you the ability to watch and record from both TVs at the same time.

I was looking those earlier, I dont know anyone personally use one, would like some feedback from someone who has one in a camper before spending that kind of money.

How about a simple A-B Box, that's what I have and works great.

My directv box has hdmi out and composite out. I have to split the signal on one of those and get it 30 ft away on the other end of the trailer.

A search on "Extend HDMI via Wireless" finds lots of solutions.

Here's some wireless stuff on Amazon.

If you go wireless then go with something quality or you wonít be happy. I use iogear 200$ wireless box to my main tv but I only go 10 feet. I tried it to the rear tv but the walls cause some dropouts. There are 100$ ways to send hdmi via coax if you already have coax from the front to the back. I havenít used it but would consider it. Transmitter and receiver boxes on ea end of the coax. Personally we just use the coax feed via a game converter to Channel 3 ( what you already tried ) Not the best video ( std definition ) but itís clear. I only watch the late news anyway with it .

I used the coax already in the trailer from the factory. I tried this https://www.amazon.com/CIMPLE-CO-Com...s%2C203&sr=8-3 but the picture looked worse than my parents tv antenna growing up in the middle of no where.
