Getting Direct TV to work

I just traded up to a 2010 Freedom Revolution LE 42T. We went on a shakedown trip this weekend and was suprised that just about everything working. I was able to get the Direct TV to work on the TV over the dash but not on any of the other TV's. My previous MH had a video selector box that you switched between sources, but this one doesn't have that. Does anyone have any ideas to what I'm doing wrong.

I have to have two Direct TV receivers to have one up forward and one in the bedroom. How many Direct TV receivers in the MH?

Hi Steve62758,
Welcome to iRV2. If you are looking to play the same channel on all TVs, there should be a distribution box somewhere. If you are looking to play different channels on different TVs. You will need additional receivers. There is a limit on how many receivers the DTV dish can handle.

The Sat receiver may wired direct to each tv and selected by setting the tv to its Video 1 input. That's how it is on my '04 Fleetwood American Tradition.

A call to Fleetwood Customer Service should get you an answer fast.
