Based on the information I see here, http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp...Receivers&sku= the TV2 output is a composite base-band signal, not RF. Are you using an external modulator or the port labeled "Active Distribution"?

If your new HDTV has an HDMI input, I would recommend you use HDMI to link the sat. rx to your TV. If no HDMI, then use component (Y,Pb,Pr), S-video or composite (listed in descending order of preference). The lowest quality video + audio connection will be via RF.

If you absolutly must use RF, then you may be able to find a Jointenna at Warren Electronics. http://www.warrenelectronics.com/Ant...Jointennas.htm Be sure to verify the channel number... the Jointenna product uses over the air channel numbering. I don't know if the VIP622 uses OTA or cable channel numbers. The frequency of OTA channel 60 is not the same as Cable channel 60. http://w4zt.com/freqs/tv.html

I see mtownsend has good info also (thx)
