If you dont get the answer you are looking for soon I will be picking mine up at storage next week and upload photos of what I did. My Sat and Direct TV box is behind my bedroom TV. I have a HDMI transmitter installed to send the signal. All three TV's have Sat and Amazon Fire Stick.

We figured it out. He had the sat up front, found a random coax cable. We moved it to the bedroom, then realized he needed a splitter.

I made a note to engineering to sit down and meet with me on this. 1. we should be telling people where the sat should go and 2. let them know if the customer needs to provide anything or then we should provide it. It was a good learning experience for us all.

Very good. The guys at Demartini RV got mine figured out and it works perfect. I just needed a few parts installed and all is good. Glad he got it working.

You just need an HDMI splitter and a power strip. Receiver goes in the bedroom. There should be a spare HDMI that goes to the front TV. The power strip will give you enough outlets as there is only a duplex (one for the receiver and one for the TV). You need one for the HDMI splitter.

Ah, give them my best. I like Tim and Jon both. They have been very supportive and complimentary over the past 4-6 years. Great guys to work with...and I give them credit where credit is due, they were he ones that pushed hard for the 30FW Isata 5. We spoke about it for almost a year before it came to life.
