Yes, very easy. I make an assumption that you already have a bedroom TV installed and hooked up to the cable plug. In the coax that comes out of the receiver add a splitter. Run one coax to your living room TV and the other hook up to the cable line that is probably in the vicinity of your living room TV. This is usually on the plate that also has the amplifier for over the air reception. You will have the same program on both the living room TV and the bedroom TV.

The wally receiver only has one HDMI output no coax ! Do they make a HDMI splitter and a HDMI to coax converter ? Thanks

They have wireless HDMI transmitters. Bit expensive but I hear they work well.

Iím in the same boat as I wait on delivery for my unit. The easiest I have come up with is the wireless, but will be very expensive to 3 TVís. HDMI to Cat 6 isnít expensive if itís possible to fish Cat 6 to the other TVís. Would like to hear peopleís methods as well.

Hyperactive: Sorry, but I did not know the wally receivers output was completely different than my ancient dish receiver. I don't have a need other than getting a signal so it works fine for me. It is now in my 2016 Pinnacle and I get the feed in the bedroom and outside TV. This is the third fifth wheel I have hooked it up as described. Good luck in finding something simple and cheap to fix your problem.

Wouldn't something like this https://www.homedepot.com/p/Gardner-...FQJ8fgodFYIHGQ
work as a splitter?
Do you have a coaxial jack in the bedroom? If so then you would need to find out where it starts from. Somewhere in the 5er is a splitter and one cable goes to the bedroom and one to the living area. You might have to start digging in behind drawers and panels to find out how they ran the coaxial.

Op has only a HDMI connection. No coax connection on the Walley receiver. He needs to go from HDMI to coaxial. I do don't know if such a device exists.
