There is a good chance that all the decoders are now set to the same UHF channel causing the issue. BUT it depends on how the RF signal is distributed.
Decoder 1 RF OUT to decoder 2 RF IN, RF OUT to decoder 3 RF IN and the RF OUT to the remote TV? UHF channel clashes now guaranteed.
Alternatively (the better option) combine the RF OUT signals with SLX splitters and then distribute the combined RF signal wherever you want to use it with a tvLINK eye.
If only one decoder has the RF OUT connected to the distant TV, then this should not be causing any issues.
What about the HB setup? How has this been done?
The eye will only play up if it is not getting power from the decoder/s. And that could be a simple issue in the setup where the power is set to OFF.
This thread illustrates the dangers of NOT knowing precisely what ALL the decoder settings are before doing a reset to defaults.
