After a little head scratching, I came up with a method to intall a second satellite receiver in the bedroom of our Dutch Star. We are on Direct TV and the satellite signal cannot be run through a regular splitter or standard switching box found in most RVs. We have a dual LNB from our Winegard crankup auto dish with one hooked to the receiver in the front and then to the video control box. The second receiver is located in the back and gets the signal from the installed coax. To make it work and also allow cable, antenna or dvd viewing, a device called a diplexer must be intalled on each end of the coax. On the front end, the downlead from the dish connect to one side of the diplexer (they are marked) and a short lead from the video switchbox connects to another input on the same side of the diplexer as the downlead from the dish. The coax to the back connects to the opposite side of the diplexer. On the back end, the coax is connected to the single input side of the diplexer and two short cables are run to the Sat input and the antenna input on the back of the satellite receiver. A short cable is then connected to the TV connection on the receiver and to the normal input on the back of the TV. You can switch between DSS and the video selection box output by using the DSS remote. Works great, and allows the DW and me to watch different programming when only satellite is available. I know this is a little complicated and if anyone is interested, PM me and I will attempt to explain further
