Satellite wiring ?

On our 2015 Discovery we have an in-motion satellite for Direct TV. I would like to be able to get a signal when it is parked inside my building. I have a dish mounted on the outside which serves a tv in the building. Can I run a cable to the park/cable hook-up in the basement and feed the two receiver boxes, front and bedroom? If not how would you suggest making this work?

If the existing receivers are SWM and the building mounted dish is as well, it may work. Some park/cable connections work and some don't. Won't know until you try. Otherwise, 2 cables from the building mounted dish, 1 to each box directly.

Ok. I'll run a cable across the building before fishing it through the attic and down the wall. Just wasn't sure if hooking it to the park/cable connection would get it to the receivers in the coach. I'll give it a try. Thanks

As I understand it you cant, the park cable feeds into the off air antenna and signal wont get past the amplifier if you pm me i can send you the schematic

Is there a way "around" the amplifier to make this work?

This isn't always the case. In my 04, the park cable went to the overhead cabinet with the A/V equipment. It was connected to the BOMB (Box Of Many Buttons). I simply disconnected the park cable coax and hooked it directly to the DirecTv box. As long as there is no splitter or other device on that coax, it works quite well. My OTA antenna runs through the amplifier and then to the BOMB.

Use 1 A-B coax switch. Before the amp. A terminal to amp. B to DTV
