Carry out satellite

Thanks to everyone who responded. I finally figured it out. My solution was to return the carry out and watch over the air when I can't watch satellite.

Once again thanks for everyones help.

I called the manufacture and spoke with a tech. His only response was run the coax through a door or window or drill a hole in the side. All 3 answers made no sense to me. Could someone please steer me in the right direction ?
As you can see I'm a nubie here so please be straight forward in your answers. Thank you in advance.
We just dealt with this with directv. Our only option was to run the coax through the driver's window. Luckily, they make a flat coax female-female connector so you can still close the window.

If you only have one connection outside it is possible to use it for the satellite. These 2 YouTube videos explain the process. Although, he doesn't do that good of a job explaining it. Basically, he added a jumper plate that allows the outside cable connection to go 2 different ways. One set of jumpers is the stock setting going through the amplifier. The other bypasses the amplifier and sends the signal directly to all of the TV's. Granted, you can't necessarily watch different channels on all 3 TV's at once but you're at least sending the signal to each TV.

Part one

you the answer. You can dig in to understand or just accept diplexers as magic boxes.... 2. Cables into one and 2 out of that one at the other end. One goes where the one does today the other one (satellite) goes to the satellite receiver. It's worked fine for me for years.

That's good but in some case the diplexers don't do the job. I really didn't want to run new coax lines from outside to inside so this was my alternative. My jumper plate will be hidden in a cabinet and in less than 2 minutes I can switch the jumpers from stock to satellite. I had thought about using an A-B switch but couldn't find one with the frequency range that satellite needs.
