Hey Creativepart, I tried the rerouting Sgtlm17 posted on the other topic. It really works and so simple.

Testing new Winegard Pathway X1 today

Tried using your diagram Creativepart for the wall connections. Not working using outdoor hookup and jumper to receiver. But it is working fine going directly from Sat to receiver. Tried different jumpers and still not working. Says switch problem encountered. Will try again in an hour with different jumper.

The DW is very happy with the sound now coming thru the overhead speakers instead of the tinny sounding TV speakers and the great picture. Us silly seniors didn't realize we had the TV set on 480 instead of 1080. Huge difference in quality after adjusting.
Now to solve the MH wiring from outdoor connection to receiver.

X1 manual says that the coax from the dish to the receiver must be direct not thru a switch. Will try agin with other jumpers and maybe the plate was installed upside down???

Pathway X1 only works with direct connection

I used a good jumper from all of the wall plate connections to receiver. None worked, only directly from satellite.

The sound bar arrived and installed...Best $49 I ever spent.

Also was able to determine the on-off switch for charging station is bad, will fix and can then power sound bar from the charging station.

For those using the dash radio for surround, even if I wanted to do so, ignition must be on for it to work. 'nuff said.

Really, my radio works without the ignition on. There is a green light always lit and draining the engine battery.

We have a Rockwood 2604WS and I was wondering if anyone has ever connected the DVD player to front Bedroom TV. I was also hoping to connect Dish box to front TV. My plan is to use a couple of HDMI splitters and long cables. I was wondering if anyone had tried this or has a better Idea. On a separate note does anyone know if you can mount a Dish box on its side.
