Just added second Satellite receiver. In entertainment center cabinet there were two coax cables... one for Main TV and one for Bedroom TV.

Question is.... in passenger overhead there's the switch for TV Antenna/Park Cable that feeds to all TV's. The bedroom TV has only one coax connector. How does RF signal get from cable connected to Satellite receiver to rear tv? Is there a switch or cable combiner or??

Reason for asking is... Rear TV does get signal from second satellite reciever but it's really crappy signal.

Anyone know about the Coax distribution system? All other video works great from switchbox.

Welcome Lee to the Newmar forum and irv2.
On my box there should be a red led on when working off Bat wing ant. All selector switches for coax should be on for aux input for external coax feed or ant feed thru your selector box. You may need a A-B switch for a feed to bedroom from a satellite receiver.
Check you cable connections for feed from sat-reciever may just be loose.
Someone with ESSEX will chime in I'm sure.
Enjoy the forum and do post often.

We used the "Aux" switch(and feed) on the selector box for the 2nd Sat Receiver.

We have had a few issues with ours, too. I would first ask you; how was your reception before you added the second receiver?
Our two problems involved; 1. the bedroom TV (Phillips) was supposed to have a wiring harness (to accomodate the HD wiring), and it was not installed. When we installed it, all was fine for a few months; 2. the buffet bottom, which houses the reciever, does not have enough depth to accomodate the connectors' length, and the wiring to them has deteriorated as we travel. They have had to be re-connected, and everything is fine.

Works great now that I've taken AV output from 2nd receiver and fed it into AUX port on the switch box.

Coax is not the way to go!
