Roof Satellite to Bedroom/Outdoor TV's

CreativePart, you're up on this.. I now have a ladder mounted Sat dish using the roof Sat connector up front on the roof. I connect the sat receiver to the middle connector on the plate shown below and all works well for the cabover TV 32" Jensen. What I did for the outside TV 32" Jensen was to run an HDMI cable down the wall behind my couch and up to the sat receiver and get a GREAT picture. But since I have the Dish ViP211z receiver, there doesn't seem to be a way to use satellite to the bedroom. Can't really run an HDMI cable back to the bedroom and somehow thru the wall. No regular cable connection on the back of the sat receiver. Is there an adapter that will allow me to take the HDMI cable and use an apter to plug into the bottom connector on the plate below?

I am looking for the same type of adapter. No luck so far.

I used an RF Modulator similar to this one:

https://www.amazon.com/RCA-Compact-R.../dp/B0014KKV7W

My sat receiver also had no coax output, but did have composite video output in addition to the hdmi that I used for the front TV. The RF Modulator converts the composite signal to coax and I then used the existing coax cables in the RV to get to the rear and outside TVs.

I used an HDMI splitter for my ViP211z to my bedroom TV. Went through 2 walls, under shower and bath vanity. Different model but it is all possible.
An HDMI splitter is the only way to get HD signal to both sets.

I have one and will give it a try tomorrow. My 400w inverter should handle both the sat receiver and RF modulator. Thanks

Ii had a 211Z and it had a RF output coax connection that I connected to the bottom connector on that 3-coax plate. But I replaced that with a new Dish "Wally" receiver last month.. The Wally doesn't have an RF output but does have component outputs. So I bought a $19 component-to-RF addapter at an electronics store, but Dish sells the same one. And now I plug that into the bottom coax connected on the 3-coax plate.

Unlike the 211Z the Wally has an RF remote rather than an IR remote. So it works the receiver from anywhere in the RV, even from outside.

I haven't tried one yet but there are wireless HDMI devices that will send the HDMI signal to your bedroom TV..

Thanks, I haven't tried the RF modulator yet, maybe tomorrow. We have never used the bedroom TV other than to test it out once in a while. But it may give it a try where I can watch in the bedroom while the DW reads in the dinette area.
