If I have an external HD antenna, can I split the signal and use the one antenna for 2 HD TV's at the same time? Thanks!

I don't see why not.

That will work fine. You may want an amplifier/splitter if the signals are weak.

Just make sure you use the correct splitter. Some splitters are made for Satellite/Cable frequencies and others are for antennas.

I split my antenna feed from one HD tv to two HD tvs in my house a couple of weeks ago. There was a samll drop in signal strength due to using the splitter, but all of my HD channels still come in fine. If you are having problems after you split it I would suggest using a pre-amp on your antenna. The pre-amp works by having the amplifier mounted on the antenna. It the has the power control box somewhere in your house prior to your splitter.

I found this forum has some great information if you need to do more research.

Thanks guys, Wife said no to a new LCD for the game room a few minutes ago. She was sorta smiling. Daughter was just accepted to college for fall/07, so I have very little time to get it done. I need a strategy, ideas?

Just go out and buy it, Mitch - It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.:D
