Satellite TV

Newbie here and first post... have a 2018 Sunseeker. can i hook up dish tailgater satellite to any of the external hook ups and get satellite tv inside the rig or do i need to add wiring? have tried all the combinations that i can think of with no luck (i.e. rg6 cable in both receptacles on each side of the rig, receiver direct to inside tv, rg6 from where i see it wire come inside).

appreciate the any advice!

A satellite receiver is also required and a subscription to what ever provider you are using.

Welcome to the FRF Sunseeker Section. I see where you wrote that you tried your receiver direct and nothing. Have you set up the input on the TV?
It would also be a good idea to put your model number in your signature block or in your public profile or in the body of your text so those with that model can give you more precise info or better suggestions.

B1ONIC, welcome! The amplifier circuit messes with the signal from the Sat dish. There is a simple mod that you can do to the plate that has your amplifier switch on it. It has been a while since I did mine, but you add another coax connector to the wall plate that has the amp in it and then use a short piece of coax to jumper to the amp for TV and connect your sat receiver to the unamplified jack side for sat. Search around for satellite problems and you will find this mod. If I run across it I will post a link.

B1ONIC, if you haven’t found a “how to” yet, this one is good. Booster Plate Mod for Satellite
