HD conversion for thirty tv's

04-26-2012, 10:53 PM
Hello everyone. Brand new to this forum so I hope this is the correct place for my thread. I am the owner of a sports bar in CA which currently has over thirty televisions which are primarily Vizio's. I was quoted just over 6K to upgrade the signal to HD. The quote includes adding HD boxes to each television and wiring throughout. I know that there are other options besides using dedicated boxes on each television but are any of them more cost effective? Each television would require on average 60 to 100 feet of cable from the box location to the actual television. This quote is from a private installer and I haven't had much help from DirectTV so I'm not sure if they will assist with the setup or costs involved for the upgrade. Basically trying to cover all my bases before making the big investment. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

60 tvs? how many are playing the same thing? 12 boxes would allow you to have a 1:5 ratio. Put your 12 boxes in a rack. If your not planning on sound from each tv, run 3 coax, converted to RGB for video. You can get a componant distribution box 1 in 8 out. Might cut cost in half
