2 satellite in lines

On my 2017 401flx there are 2 satellite in plugs on the outside. I know one goes to the "living" room, but does the other one go to the bedroom?

Are you positive that both are for the satellite, and one is not for cable? Something similar to this pic?

I don't have the same unit but I have Sat1, Sat2, and Cable. I could never get service through Sat1 but Sat2 on mine goes to the living room TV cabinet.

Did you try Sat. 1 in the bedroom ?

No. I didn't need to. I have one DIRECTV Genie controller on that Sat2 connection behind the living room TV. Then out of my splitter through the antenna coax to the bedroom, I connect the Genie mini to the bedroom TV.

Typically.... Sat 1 goes to the living area and is a homerun. (no splitters)
Sat 2 goes to the bedroom and is a homerun. (no splitters)

Many satellite receiver/dish combinations allow hooking up multiple receivers to the dish from various locations within the rig. The Sat 1 & 2 connections allow this type of operation

Then I can only assume mine is atypical.

atypical or not, if I had two sat inputs, I'd be trying to figure out why one didn't work.
