Two Tvs in one room with one reciever

Not really sure where this topic goes so I'm putting it here.

Ok so I want to put another tv in my room so I can watch two different football games at once, I have Directv and I don't want to get another reciever (too much hassle).

Is there any way to do this, what do I need? (is it legal?)

No, I'm calling the FBI right now. No one is allowed to have 2 TVs in one room. You felon!!

You will not be able to get 2 signals from one Directv receiver. You will need 2 of them. If you get 2 of the same model (either the TVs or the receivers), you will run into remote control issues. There are fixes for that.

If it was illegal, I'd be in serious trouble.

You will also need to have another cable coming from your dish down to this room so that you can connect the 2nd DTV receiver. Just buying a conventional splitter will not work.

Obviously I meant splitting a satellite signal.



Thanks for the help...
