Default Do they make DTV Receivers w/two HDMI outputs?

Ihave to run a line down to my basement, somehow, but can I drill a hole in the floor, and drop another HDMI cable down for the TV down there?

You could use the HD component output for the 1st tv and HDMI for the 2nd tv.

You can get a box that will split a single HDMI signal into 2 and use rf remote to switch channels

Directv does not sell these splitters. A basic 1x2 HDMI splitter will cost at least $75 (the $10 cable splitters do not work). Online retailers like monoprice sell the basic 1x2 splitter.

I bought a 1 x 4 HDMI splitter on Ebay for $25 and it works great. It was advertised as a 1 x 2 HDMI splitter, then I receive it and open the box and it's a 1 X 4.

1X4 would be a switch I hope. You wouldn't want a signal split 4 ways. I did try a 1X2 splitter from monoprice and it worked but I sent it back and used a 1X2 switch. $99 vs $30.
