Directv with 2 boxes and 2 tvs

Greetings. We recently purchased a 2004 Fleetwood Excursion 39S. It had a roof mounted satellite dish, which was removed prior to our purchase. I have a single cable input in the wet bay for park cable. I have a portable satellite dish outside that I plug into the cable port. The coach has a BOMB with various inputs/outputs. Can I use the SAT input to feed the dish signal to both tvs at the same time and have both work at the same time. I don't have HD service, just SD and a basic 18" dish. As of now, I can only watch one tv at a time as they compete for control of the dish. The BOMB is buried in the back of the electronics cabinet and I am hoping to get some feedback before I disconnect everything and try it. Thanks in advance for any help.

You need to have a dual LNB (about $20) at the antenna to use two feeds. You can split the signal after it comes out of the receiver, but you can't split the antenna beforehand.

Really depends on dish and receiver setup. You could do a single line with SWM if you wanted to upgrade and go that route, if not then you will need a dual LNB and yes multi runs to the dish.

Bootable - I already have the boxes and the portable dish setup. I will change out the dish to a dual lnb and pull the second cable.
