We have the 320RS Columbus and LOVE it also!!! We are only able to get the sat connection in the main room. Can't get it to the bedroom or basement. Did you try to go through the cable in instead of the sat?? maybe wires backwards??? This is one issue that we have listed to work on. (mind you the list is short)

Although you can get antenna and park cable in both rooms the sat. is usually only wired to the main tv. You would have to run a separate cable to the bedroom for sat. You can't switch the cables and use the cable input(antenna) because the sat. signal will not pass thru the switch at the amplifier. They do make an HDMI signal repeater that will send the signal wireless to the b.r. but they are in the $150 range.
