HDMI switch box?

I switch out my old TV's in my 99 tradewinds to new style LCD TV's and a new blue ray dvd player. I also purchased a new satellite receiver box while I was at it and it does not have a coaxial out only HDMI on the satellite box. The problem is that the switch box is all coaxial cable style receiver style plugs and does not have any plugs to accept HDMI in it. So, how does one go about doing this conversion? Any help would be great!

You did not specify the ins and outs of your old coax switch box - 3 in by 2 out, 4 in by 1 out, etc.

If all your components now accept HDMI then I would buy a new HDMI switch box.

Here is a link to amazon 4by2 HDMI switch/splitter.

Unless you still have a device that only accepts coax, I would move the the HDMI protocol for all your devices - it carries audio and sound digitally.

Hope this helps,
Brian

Sorry for the confusion. My motorhome is wired with coaxial cable already, and to run HDMI through it would be very expensive I'm sure. My current switch box is coaxial only, it is a old audiovox I think. set up for two tv's, satellite, aux and dvd player. it has about 7 coaxial connectors on it.

OK - I understand your intent now.

There are HDMI extenders that allow you to send HDMI over coax cable, and I have no experience with these - someone else who has used them may chime in. They are expensive. $300 to $400 for the ones that I have seen in the past. Link here.

Sorry cannot be of more help,
Brian
