Proper connection for satellite box on 360

I am trying to make sure I have placed my sat box in right connection on the 360. I used the control box on top of dvd and plugged the sat into the antenna/sat aux. I would love to be able to use bed room tv on antenna while grands watch a Direct tv movie in front. Right now the only thing I get on rear tv is same sat channel that is on front. Any thoughts??? All replies appreciated, as the walk thru was rather fast, they wanted the money. Just bought this unit new, 2011.

Does your Satelite receiver have RCA Component Connections on the back as well as a Coaxial Cable Connection? How far from the Receiver is the front TV? In my case I have the RCA Component Cables RED-WHITE-YELLOW out of the receiver and plugged into the Component 1 Input on the TV and the Coaxial cable is connected through the control box so I can send it to the rear TV. To watch Satelite up front I change the TV input to Component 1 and then the rear TV is available for Park Cable or Antenna. Hope this helps but your set-up may be completely different than mine.

Thanks for the info. Every little bit helps. Our tv is in the middle of the coach and there is no front tv but your info is interesting. I will report back once I get things fired upand do some testing.
FR could have spent another few bucks and put in a better switching device with more inputs..

Yeah, but just think of all the fun you'd be missing!!! Good luck, hope it works out. If you still can't get it to work give us some more details about what connections are on each piece. Maybe we can figure it out from there.

I've got a 2012 350ts with a DVD player and switch in the front. Does anyone know where the aux/satellite port wired to from the switch? I'm wondering if it's on the roof? I've been plugging my satellite into the cable hookup because I use a portable dish and that is a convenient place to go. Just wondering where the other hookup is. Thanks.
