TV Coax

Just recently purchased a 2016 2401W.
In the cabinet above the door, left sidewall where the TV plugs in, behind the power/amplifier plate is another plate with 3 coax connectors, there is a coax cable between the top and bottom connectors.
What are the 3 connectors and why the strap between top and bottom?
Thanks...

Quite possible these are connectors for cable or satellite.

Do you have 2 TVs? It may be connecting the bedroom to the living area.

Question? Do all the TVs work as you expected? Cable and Off the Air?

If so and your just curious. I get that.

Turn on all your TVs and disconnect one of the cables. You will probably get a clue as to where one end goes. Process of elimination.

Good Luck.

See response #27 on this thread:

It's from Brian Clemens (still the best!) and explains that the center connector is pre-wired for a rooftop satellite dish. I think this arrangement allows you to insert a satellite receiver into the mix, connecting one of the other two coax's to a cable or antenna in on the receiver, connecting the center connector to the satellite in, and connecting the third connector to a TV out on the receiver.

I think.

Thank you all for your replies, have a better idea of what I've got. I'll have to do some more experimenting to determine where all these cables go.
