r6 cable is r6 cable, how would the direct tv reciever no any different? I had cable at my house, then swithed to direct tv, and I didn't have to make any changes, the tvs are still hooked up to the same connection. So I don't see why it would be any different In a camper. Just curious. You are right jimh about having to pass DC voltage to the dish, I'm just trying to figure out why you still couldn't with a cabe hookup.

you can if u remove that connection from ur winguard switch box and run it straight. the winguard contains a splitter to supply two tv's. splitters isolate the inputs (block the DC). they also need to be able to pass 950 to 2250mhz. i don't think the winguard splitter goes that high.

it isn't the cable, it's what it goes thru.

Oh I got ya, I don't have a winguard, I use a round 18" satelite on a tri pod im going too run the coax to the connection on the outside of the camper labeled "cable" because my current 5ver dosesnt have satelite connection I traded in my 2004 8528ress and it did. I have not got to take this one out yet because my boss at work thinks it's more important to go to work hmm now you got me wondering. If it will work, but I do have splitters in my house..

Thanks for the diagram, I see now, I guess you have to rewire it then. Hmm well at least I found out now instead of when I was allready at the camp ground.

either that or run one direct between the dish and the dish input to ur sat receiver.
that first pfd is a very neat way to rewire ur winguard switch.

Most likely the "easiest" way is to home run a coax from the SAT dish to the receiver and route it through the bottom a a convenient slide seal.
