      Answer

      No, only the cable-direct tv set top box must be on. This assumes you have used an HDMI cable to connect from the cable box to the Actiontec transmitter and then connected the transmitter to your tv. If you connect the cable box to the TV and the TV to the transmitter, you may then need to have the TV on.

        Answer

        No, the show on the transmitter source (cable or satellite box) is sent to the receiver. The receiver is just running off the one box so whatever is selected will play on both TVs.

            Are you able to turn the channels on the receiving tv?   (5 Answers)

            We hooked up this system - but we cannot turn the channel on the receiving tv. Is this how it is supposed to work? We understood it would control everything on the receiver.

                According to the Actiontec website additional receivers were set to be available in the fourth quarter 2015, however, as of January 1st their website indicated that they weren't available at that time. Hopefully, they will have them released soon.

                      No.....You connect the HDMI Transmitter to the Cable box and the Receiver to the 2nd TV. The Transmitter will send a wireless HDMI Output signal to the Receiver .
