I would not try it. Why would you want to do that? Both tv will have to watch the same thing..the way I see it.

Thanks what i'm trying to do is run a line from my living room cable box that goes to my main tv to 1 on the exterior of my home on the patio the 1 on the patio is seldom used and I understad that the same chanel will be on both I just don't want to comprimise my main tv's picture.I could run analog to exterior but the hdmi is already there and that will require me to nock out some brick to rewire.I guess I'm just trying to find an easy way out.
Thanks again

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
