dish tailgater 1997 dolphin

I just bought a dish tailgater with the wally, can I hook the cable from the dish into the cable connection on the coach and then hook the receiver into the cable where it comes out inside the coach? Haven't started getting it set up thought I would check here since the book don't really help. Thanks.

Not quite.
The cable from the tailgater has to go directly to the wally, then the signal from the device that selects the satellite (Wally) channel goes into the CATV distribution box. In our '05 Dolphin it is the Box-Of-Many-Buttons (BOMB).

You may have to go through an HDMI to CATV converter to get the signal into the BOMB.

Thank you. So if I'm understanding you right hook the tailgater to the wally (receiver) then connect the wally to the box with all the buttons that controls which tv, dvd, etc you are watching, then hook the various cables into that box. Think mine is made by audiovox. There is another box of some kind too the guy I bought it from didn't know what it was for he never used the TV's. This box has an on/off button and what looks like an up down buttons. Probably wont fool with it until the weekend, but plan to take out all the stuff we wont use. (old vcr, broken dvd player) Again thank you.
