Re: splice two tvs on one cable box

Sure you can, you would have to use whatever outputs are available on the X1 box

Actually,

You might want to provide more information. Do you have X1 now? If so, which X1 box? What connection cables to you have available? What inputs do your TV sets have? Are you expecting HD quality on both TV sets?

Re: splice two tvs on one cable box

You can also buy a cheap HDMI splitter (Monoprice $20.00) and run the cables to each TV. It gets a little complicated if one TV is more than 25 feet away, then you might need a amplified splitter. Also cables have to be the right gauge, lower number better. They have some 24AWG cables that work well.
