Why woud you want a receiver that is not active? Do you want to use a receiver in two different rooms without moving it?
You can connect two TVs - https://sewelldirect.com/Sewell-HDMI-1x2-Splitter-v13b.asp?ad_source=GoogleAdWords&ad_medium=PPC&ad_...
You can control the STB in room one from room 2 - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/423521-REG/Universal_Remote_RFS200_RFS200_Master_Control_Power...
Also, the LOgitech Harmony HOME control says it is a full featured remote. Checking to verify that means it transmits IR. Logitech also sells a SMART control with a SIMPLE remote that does NOT transmit IR.
Further research seems to indicate that all three remotes (smart, home, ultimate home) that use the hub ONLY generate IR from the HUB. Therefore, they cannot control a TV in one room and an STB in another, wirelessly. The HUB must be in one room & a miniblaster in the other room, connected by a wire. An extension wire would probably work. I connected two miniblasters to one jack with a Y connector, so the signal is probably strong enough to reach room to room. If you can run a wire.

Sounds like the best choice is to move it the infrequent times it would be needed. Better than paying 8-9 dollars each month it is not used.
If you really, really want another one, can you wire one of the existing locations and place the freed-up wireless in the extra room?

A. As stated, you can only have 2 wireless boxes
B. Why not replace one of your wireless boxes with a wired box and move the wireless in the extra room.
C. You'll pay the montly fee regardless if the box is used or not.
Edit: aviewer, we're both thinking the same thing!
