DirecTV 2020 Anthem

DirecTV experienced installer looked at the set up in our 2020 Anthem today to prep for install tomorrow. Travelr antenna deployed fine and he got good signal at the main TV and bedroom TV sat outputs.
He does not see how to attach a receiver client to the exterior TV. Does exterior TV mirror the bedroom TV and the front TV mirrors the main TV?

Sounds like you need a RV installer who knows the system. A single receiver can be shared by the entire coach. The selection of what to watch, DTV, over-the-air, DVD, etc, is made at each TV through the Vegatouch system (using the TV matrix). To do so, the receiver gets added to the AV system, and will be able to be selected by any of the four TVs. The draw-back is that you will be seeing the same channel on all 4 TVs. The Travelr can drive two receivers which enables watching two different channels at one time, in which case most people put the second receiver in the bedroom. Bottom line, the outside TV is already wired into the AV system, so once the DTV receiver is properly installed, DTV will automatically be one of the selections at the outside TV.

I assume your 2020 Anthem is same as our cornerstone. Both of our receivers, genie and mini, sit in the same spot and there’s one connection that goes directly to the main 4K tv. Main receiver feeds the other three tvs.

The set up I am looking for is to be able to watch two different Directv channels on two different TVs at the same time.

I recently purchased a 2020 Anthem "W" layout. I tried to hook-up our Directv DVR and found that the Traveler Satellite connection was in the left-hand upper cabinet and the Vega Touch was in the right hand upper cabinet where you need to input the HDMI Satellite receiver into the "B" input in the Vega Touch to use the Satellite throughout the coach. Not only was that a problem but the cabinets were too small to accommodate the Directv DVR.
I ended-up running a satellite antenna coax wire into the right cabinet (behind the main tv speaker bar) and routed down into a new connection panel on the left-hand side of the kitchen cabinet along with a new HDMI cable tied into the Vega Touch. In order for Satellite to be shared on all the TV's it needs to be connected to the "B" input on the Vega Touch. A second receiver can be installed in the bedroom for the bedroom tv only.
I've attached a picture of my installation.

We have 2020 Anthem 44B where the electronics cabinet is above the fireplace. So we have figured out that two different satellite channels can be viewed on main TV and Bedroom TV at same time. I want to know can it be done on exterior TV.

That's how mine is set up. One receiver for the LR, front and outside TV, the other for the BR

Ok the installer put the HR54 receiver in the electronics cabinet and it controls all 4 TVs through the Matrix on HDMI1. A Genie client went on the bedroom TV and works on HDMI2 for separate channel viewing. Thanks for the guidance.
