How Many TV's Can The Wireless Receiver Distribute To?

I'm maxed out on my LAN ports and want to temporarily add a wireless location.  I'm thinking of using a AV receiver/transmitter connected to the composite outputs.  I'm currently connected via HDMI to one TV.  Just like to know if the receiver can hanle the load.

 

Thanks,

 

Jon

Yes, I believe it is strongly recommended to not mix computers and TV on the same switch. Here is a switch that I saw in posts recommending it - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00006RVPW/ref=asc_df_B00006RVPW1644937?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=asn&creative=395093&creativeASIN=B00006RVPW

jerlands - A wireless receiver is fed by a WAP that consumes a LAN port. So, to free up a port you would need two Wireless receivers fed off the same WAP. And, return one wired receiver.

You can add ports with a switch.

A wireless receiver can handle multiple connections, just like a wired receuver. To connect an AV with a TV you have two choices. HDMi through the AV to the TV, using the AV to select source. Or, HDMI to the TV & sound multipled to the AV via optical or the audio jacks.

Component would be used to feed a second TV from one STB. This has been done in the past. The other day I was setting up two TVs HDMI/composite & when the HDMI was not live, the component was blocked - no signal.

Re: Switch to expand ports...

 

Hmm, I currently have two of the LAN ports devoted to TV's.  I take it then I could put all TV's on the switch?

 

Thanks,

 

Jon

Thanks... I didn't know if 1 Gigabits Per Second was necessary or not.
