Bedroom TV connection question

I think I need to sit and draw this out, but maybe I can do it in words.

DW asked how we could get Satellite reception on bedroom TV......without using a receiver on that tv.

I pondered.........

I wondered if I could put the SwM module outside the trailer........and instead of running it to Receiver #1, run that coax to a splitter........and from the splitter, just run a short run to both outside connections ("main" and "bedroom".......or whatever they are called)???

Then reroute bedroom (and main, too) tv to 'satellite' connection (not easy in bedroom tv, but can do).

Then still have the receiver by main TV for channel selection. Would that make both TV's show same channel???

(Side question......both TV's are goofy....they have blue (BRIGHT) LED light when OFF! When on, the blue light goes off. That's bassackwards, but it is the way it works. However, at night in bedroom, the blue light is obnoxious. I thought of black electric tape. Better idea?)

Not sure about connecting your satellite. But for the blue light on the tv. Be careful not to block the ir sensor. But I did take a small piece of elect tape and cut it so it only covers the blue light and not the ir sensor which is right next to it on my Jensen
