I have a dish network receiver (it is a duo model receiver that will send two signals out so you can watch two different channels on two different tv's), and did open up the wall and changed the sat plate from a single outlet plate to a double outlet plate. I then ran the sat in to one of the outlets and the second outlet went to my bedroom tv and outside tv outputs.
What I did was this: I took the sat in and ran it to the new plate so it stayed sat input. Then on the new plate that has the second outlet, I turned it into an inlet, and that runs from the back of my dish sat box second outlet to the plate, and thentoa splitter that I tied into the bedroom out, and to the outside outlet too. (my out to the bedroom on the main panel that has the anteanna booster, which went also to the outside outlet, if that makes sense) to clarify that in prentheses, my main plate for anteanna and cable has on the back of it: in from anteanna, in from cable, and out to the bedroom and the outside outlet, which the main out from the main plate goes toboth the bedroom and outside line so my main plate has the bedroom out line that then goes to a splitter and one side goes to the bedroom, the other goes to the outside outlet. So I just cut that main out to the bedroom and outside outlet, from the main plate (that has the inputs for anteanna and cable) and tied into that to that my sat receiver will now also send a signal out to the bedroom and outside outlet. I hope this makes sense if not ask and I maybe able to clarify it better with your question.
This way also I didnt have to use a distribution box, it was all hooked up inside the wall and I only had to add that plate that had two outlets on it.Edited by: fixit5561
