Just had uverse installed. 1 wired and 1 wireless receiver. tech insists that i can't connect a 2nd tv to the wireless receiver even thou i showed him responses in forum that you can. don't understand the replies on how to do it. i guess tech also didn't understand. so can you really connect a 2nd tv to the wireless and how do i do it? the tv is a 13" tv which i only use to watch the news in the AM. not worth paying extra monthly for another receiver.

The beauty of the wireless receiver is that you can move the receiver from one TV to another since there is no wired connection going into the receiver.
By the way, U-verse technicians are not allowed to connect 2 TV's to one U-verse receiver. Some customers have this setup; however, a U-verse technician is not allowed to set things up that way for obvious reasons.

the main tv is HD and connected via HDMI cable and small tv is SD and i connected the coax to small tv as you said and it worked but when i turn off main tv, the small tv doesn't show picture only sound. tried to turn it off and on and same thing, just sound. is there a way to fix this?

it worked without the HDMI connection and connected via component but since small tv is 2 rooms away the receivers remote won't change channels on small tv. still this is better than paying for another receiver monthly. just have to make sure main tv is set to right channel before going to bed. thanks for all the help.
