HDTV Winegard

I had a great response from an earlier thread but have had the coach at shop for month getting minor issues addressed. They also seem unable to solve the following.
I recently added a Winegard HDTV dish to my 2008 Essex. This forum saved the day when it was suggested to use the previously installed component wiring to the HDTVs in order to get the HD signal out. It works on the smaller tvs but the bedroom TV will not register a picture, and the HDTV across from fridge has ghosting and flicker if signal from directv receiver is set to 1080 resolution. I am unable to find a way to change the HDTV settings within the tv's themselves. The shop suggested a B band adapter would be the solution but it simply blocks the signal (new SIM technology i suppose). I have switched component wiring on switch and tv's with each other and at the switch with no change.
Any ideas?

Yes I have tried it both with and without the "TV boost" button on, located behind front passenger seat. It makes a difference if I am using cable vs antennae but none with the satellite problems.

I just put the traveler on my 07 Fleetwood. I used the direct tv genie. In my setup each tv has a receiver. So I have a main box and two minis. I had to run coax to the back tv and a coax to the outside tv in order for the system to work (from the SWM connecter in the av cabinet). I could have used wireless but I thought this would be simpler.

I am not sure from your explanation if you are trying to use a splitter for the tv. You will need a box for each receiver.
