I have satellite outputs on the dome, but of course, only have 1 satellite input on the coach with an additional cable hookup.

Trudi, On my Sat receiver, I have a HD output (liv room TV) and a SD output (bedroom TV). The receiver (Dish Network 722) is controlled by a UHF and infrared remote and has two tuners. The liv room tv is set to use the infrared and the bedroom is set to use the UHF. Not all receivers can do this. I split the coax cable going to the bedroom TV just after the booster box. One cable from the split (or "Y") goes to the booster box so normal over the air or cable connections will work normally. The other "y" connection goes to the sat receiver SD OUT connection on the back of the sat receiver. Hope this helps.

Stan,

Thank you for your quick response. I don't think my DirecTv receiver will do that. If it wasn't that I need to keep DirecTV to get the NFL Sunday Ticket (I can't miss my Steelers), I would switch to Dish. It sounds like from reading others that it is easier to get to work in an RV.

I ran a separate satellite line to the back bedroom and used a through the window flat cable to connect. We have an HD DVR in the living room and an HD receiver in the bedroom. We can watch different HD shows on each but can only record on program at a time on the DVR even though it has a dual tuner.
