thread591-619678: Splitting a Satellite Signal for Multiple TV's

I have DirecTV service with one DVR (not HD) receiver.  There is one TV hooked up to it, in my living room.  I would like to be able to also hook the satellite up to an additional TV in our house that is on a different level.  I would really like to be able to control the DVR from the other location, and potentially watch a different channel (is this possible?).  I do not want to have to buy another receiver and pay an additional $5 a month to DirecTV.  Can anyone tell me.. in non-techy terms =) how I can do this??  I have searched all over and see many answers to this questions, but am absolutely not technologically smart in any way and have trouble understanding the products and set-up that many of these answers talk about.. Please help me!!
