If your Direct TV box does not have any other outputs and the 2nd TV has only RF antenna input you would need to split the HDMI,

convert it to composite video/analog audio,

and then modulate it to channel 3 or 4.

You would also need the appropriate HDMI, composite video/audio and RF cables.

You can run an RCA cable to an RF Modulator and then coax the rest of the way to the old TV. Problem is that as soon as you connect that yellow RCA cable, the receiver will only output in Standard Definition, even the HDMI connection will be restricted to 480p.
