Moding TT to get Dish Network
I am trying to figure out how to be able to use my satellite equipment with my TT. I did find this set of instructions on getting your unit ready for satellite if it wasn't already satellite ready. This applies to those of us who only have the one outlet cable plate in the main living area of our TT. Does this seem accurate? I have no real idea on how this would work so any help would be great as I guess this is what I would have to do to be able to get my satellite to work through that single cable outlet that isn't satellite ready??
Somewhere in your rig, likely near the front TV is an outlet plate, this plate has a 12 volt outlet, an Antenna connector, a Switch (Button) and a LED, it's the power supply for your roof top antenna pre-amp It may say WINEGARD upon it.
The TV-ANT line to your sat receiver or television is hooked to this plate
Open the box and you will find 3 or 4 cables attached to the back... ONE of these is the PARK CABLE TV input cable. Disconnnect it and confirm that you have disconnected the proper cable.
now take the cable that currently runs from the sat receiver to the TV and hook it up where you just unhooked the PARK INPUT, Remove the TV-ANT-IN cable from the front of the plate to the sat receiver and plug it into the TV. Using an extension cable hook the PARK cable to the TV-ANT-IN jack on the back of the sat receiver.. here is your truth table for switches after this mod
TV switch plate ON, (Sat receiver don't matter) Over the air rooftop antenna
TV SWITCH PLATE OF, Sat Receiver on: Sat television
BOTH Switch plate and Sat receiver off: Park cable TV
