After reading the last few pages, I still don't really get what I should do.
Anyone kind enough to help me and summarize what I should do?
I will have 3 tvs at 3 different floors.
The first floor(living room) will have a 50+" tv(haven't bought it yet, waiting for the 3D series) for general use, most probably for watching Astro only.
The second floor(bedroom) will have a 32" tv, for Astro and watching normal dvd.
The third floor(living room with HT system) will have a projector and very large tv, for watching Blu-Ray HD movies, Astro, etc.
Which floor do I put the decoder at? Which floor will get HD or SD quality? I'm quite new to these cable and converter stuffs as well, can anyone summarize what do I need?
Thank you very much.
Depends, the floor that u put the decoder definitely will get HD. I suggest third floor, since u have HT set on that floor. For other floors just use coaxial cable, since to use RCA and HDMI is quite impossible coz the length of the cable needed is very long.
U need AV to RF converter, AV Splitter and Coax Cable.

could anyone draw the diagram ... byond decoder split for 2 or 3 tv ... the connector used and else ..
Depends, what type of cable do u want to use? Coaxial, RCA or HDMI?
Each cable will display different quality of output.
Coaxial: Picture OK, but sometime got noise, depends on the quality of the RF converter and the length of the cable. Sound: Mono
RCA: Picture Better than Coaxial, Sound: Stereo
HDMI: HD ler...

Another issue with AV-RF convertor, is the sound in MONO or STEREO?
I am currently using the existing old Astro decoder box RF to 2nd and 3rd TV. All sound is in MONO
RF always gives MONO output. RF cannot give stereo output, since RF only using single cable. It is no like HDMI cable. HDMI is optical fibre.
My suggestion is, the easiest and the cheapest way is using coax cable. Most of the restaurants, shops eg nasi kandar use coaxial cable for their TVs (not all).
However if u still want to display HD on all of your TVs, it is quite expensive.. u need a HDMI splitter (RM400), HDMI cable (depends on the length, the normal length, which the one that astro gives cost about RM50-RM100. So do ur math..)This post has been edited by m_imrun: Feb 17 2010, 04:00 AM
