I have a stationary Winegard dish at my seasonal site that I use with the ViP 211z receiver.
With the 211z, I could not get it to feed the bedroom TV due to the fact that this model does not have a coax out. This model does have an HDMI and a A/V out. The DishNetwork guy wanted me to use a RF modulator to convert the A/V to a coax out to feed the 2nd TV but the 2nd TV would only be standard definition. (Same channel )
I bought a HDMI splitter Robot Check
and ran the second HDMI to the second TV. This allows same channel as 1st TV only but in HD.
Cheaper option than a second receiver since we only watch one TV at a time.
Edit: My 2011 coachman does not have the satellite hookup but cable only on the exterior.
