Do you have two connections on each plate? Mine has cable/Antenna and Sat/Aux at all three TV locations, the basement (4th)location only has cable/Antenna.

I just set up DirectTV in my 365SAQ the other day and I can get it to work on one tv at a time. I thought maybe there would be a way to sent the signal to more than one tv. I wouldnt mind if it was the same channel. I think I would need a seperate sat box for each tv. On the outside of my trailer it has 2 sat dish hook up jacks and one park cable. My top jack goes to the back bedroom. I didnt have time to try to see where the bottom jack went. I wonder why they would have 2? Does anyone have any info on the way this trailer was set up that woud be great.

Haven't tried our satellite yet, but sounds like it's a trial and error as to which hookup goes where. Been thinking of getting a portable dish for our DirectTv, but haven't made up my mind as to which kind to get.

The SAT outside connection ONLY goes to the AUX/SAT output on the wall plate. To route the SAT signal to other TV coax outputs in the camper you need a simple mod and then use the CABLE input instead of the SAT input.

So your saying that if you hook up your sat to the park cable jack it goes to the back bedroom? Do you have sat on more than 1 tv?
