@ TM Rich
I have a 2015 pdek trying to figure out multiple sat hook up. When I connect to sat main I have no sat reception so I connected to sat rear to watch tv in living room and just used park cable for outside kitchen tv. I have the flex sattelite dish reciever and direct tv service. Im putting a tv in bed room and on deck, curios a obout your setup would like pics if you have.
Thanks AJ

Our sat unit is the winegard x2 pathway...we were told this is the only sat unit to use multiple receivers for different channels on different tvs...we hooked up the first to the main and set up our receiver...then we hooked up our second receiver to the second port of the sat dish to the front which is the bedroom and setup the second receiver....that was the only way to get it all set up according to dish network who we have home service with...we had to add the two receivers to our account then they activated the two receivers...now if I want to use the outdoor kitchen tv I just move the receiver out there and hook directly to that tv...because they didn't have a port for that tv in the main hookup area nor dot they have one for the tv plug in the front storage area....didn't make any sense to us at all...if your gonna put all those jacks in you should have a jack up front where everything else is...so what color combination did you?

Also you can not split the signal with a splitter for some reason it wouldn't work when I done it

We bought the tailgater and travel a lot. Different states everyday so had to reset and search for each state if we could get a clear look at sat. Most of the cgs had trees blocking so no go. Sent receiver back to dish. Have tailgater doorstop!! Lol

Yes sir this is why we like the pathway x2 everyone we talked to said this was the only one to get...we travel a lot our selves and have yet to not get a reception anywhere we go....our dish automaticly points itself...we don't have to call in where ever we go....the only thing is the local channels don't come in unless we call...but to remedy that because it was a pain,in the butt...we bought an over the air antenna and hooked it up to the receiver and now we get local channels no matter where we are

And I thought we were bad with 3 in the 5er. Have 5 in the house.

Understand, but there is only the 2 of us, so when we're home we have 8 available.
