Tv stumped

We have a 05 Essex. Just bought it last week. I've tried for 2 days to get our Dish playmaker to work. We have a small TV over the dash, and larger Sony on the back wall. There are 5 coax cables running into the cabinet under the TV. I've been using a coax mapper to find which of these cables match the coax connection in the bay with the power cord. There is even a coax plate on the wall of the cabinet. There is a AVS smart source box but that for the satellite systems on the roof. Any ideas would help me from getting inebriated later, lol

Never mind, I'm going with Roku and not hassle with 100 different cables and cords. Cabinet will make a perfect adult beverage area. ��

Yep that's what we're planning on doing when we get a new one as well. Don't even want a dish. That will allow more space for solar.

Keep in mind there are many CG’s, state parks, parking lots that have poor or nonexistent cell service, No or intermittent WIFI, no cable, and weak OTA tv. You may need to invest in signal boosters for cell/WIFI, along with an unlimited cell data plan.

I was trying to use our Dish playmaker. I know it worked on our last Newmar. My Hotspot from my phone works fine with Roku, but I was trying to use our Dish. There was no signal coming into the coach from using the cable connection in the outside bay. It's no problem now, I cut all the cables out and will just use wifi. We got extra storage now, lol
