RCA. Face plate help

How do I hook up games and a satellite disk to the TV through the face plate?

Hello and welcome!
To better serve you it would help to know year make and model of your unit.
Maybe pics of your faceplate.

I have a Sabre 32 QBTS 2012 and would like to how this face plate interfaces with the TV. I want to connect a outside satellite to it, there is a connection on the back of the camper for a sett elite dish. I have picture of faceplate.

These inputs are for video and L/R audio INTO your sound system.

If you want to hook up your receiver you will need to connect the Coax from your unit to THIS wall plate's upper connector and then (hopefully) run a yellow/red/white AV cable from the back of your SAT receiver to either the TV or the sound system through that plate.

So I should be able to hook my satellite receiver to the upper plate label satellite , then plug the three uv plugs into the faceplate and put the switch on satellite .Put the TV on video and the satellite menu should show up on the TV. Then get a fix signal on the outside dish.

If you hook the coax from that faceplate to your receiver in
Then hook another coax to your tv in that's all you'll need.
Unless you skip the coax from receiver to the tv and run rca's from receiver to tv rca's in.

So you don't think it will work through the faceplate marked (game,satellite ) to the TV?

Here's what I did since there's no room above below or sideways to put my receiver inside near the entertainment center I've installed mine in the basement of my 5er.
So here's how it works.
Cable from dish goes to sat in connection on the outside of the 5er.
On the inside the coax runs to my receiver to the sat in.
Then the oe through the camper coax is hooked to sat out.
That cable is hooked to the faceplate that herk shows from the factory.
Then I simply hook a coax from the faceplate to my tv.

Now this only works if you have a uhf receiver.
