Cable Internet, DTA & TV Wiring- Cardinal 3875 FB

We have a Cardinal 3875FB.

Wanting to connect a cable modem for high speed Internet, and a DTA box to get cable channels but do not know how. No woiring diagram for the cardinal. Is it the norm to just guess?

Proved that the internet works by connecting Arris Internet cable box at the outside plinth of the cable park and getting wi-fi. Then tried to bring it inside by connecting the park cable to the connection marked "park cable" on the RV and connecting the Arris Internet cable box to the orange cable from the TV (and turned the TV antenna box off). Did not work.

Next plugged the park cable into the "satellite" connector outside (there are two) and tried plugging a cable inside from a faceplate which has two connectors like the satellite outside) Arris Internet cable box.

Will nor work by plugging Cable modem from the orange TV cable or the two on the faceplate.

I figure I need a cable splitter to run both the DTA and the cable modem,
but first priority is figuring how to get the cable internet inside the RV...

Any suggestions appreciated

Update

Quick update. managed to use one of the satellite connectors to connect inside and get the internet cable modem working. suspect one of the two satellite connections is bad.


Would still appreciate knowing how the two TV's and antenna are connected together. Thanks
