Simultaneous Output issue I have hooked up my Cisco box to my living room HDTV with HDMI and my kitchen SDTV by coax. If the HDTV in the living room is on, the kitchen TV gets video and sound. If the living room HDTV is off, the kitchen TV gets video, but no sound. It is very odd.
If I disconnect the HDMI and reboot the box, the kitchen gets video and sound on its own. Once I plug the HDMI back in, the kitchen TV loses sound with the HDTV off.
Anyone have any thoughts?
Sounds like a "feature" of the Cisco box. I have duel output out of a Moto 7100.

Works fine here the 7100 STB, using HDMI and Component though...not coax.
Thanks. Another interesting thing is that with the living room HDTV off, turning the FIOS off and on sometimes gets the sound back and sometimes does not. Very strange.
You could try one of these:
Using the Composite Video/Audio outputs of the box should give you audio even when the HDMI cable is connected.
May be best to double-check by moving the 2nd TV into the same room and using a short composite cable before buying the modulator, though.
