    on our 303, i hooked the sat up to living-room terminal in docking station, then hooked it directly to dish receiver. the sat cable going in, cannot go thru any splitter after leaving the receiver to other rooms it can be split , but signal cant go thru external tv booster in our bedroom, could never get signal to basement outlet, a coaxial signal tester is a good tool to have while doing this. There is a diagram in reflection 303 owners manual that helps a little.

    Hi @game warden,

    Our satellite cabling is direct from the utility center to the final location (as marked). If your dish has 2 outputs, you will have to select which 2 get a direct feed.

    Best regards,

    Janice, the problem with this is how do you feed both the living room (HD) and the bedroom (SD) with one receiver and still pickup local TV with rooftop antenna????????????? Please send a diagram to achieve this . I think you need to feed bedroom from receiver in living room, if you have receiver in basement you can't have HD in living room?????? Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have the 313 TT and I'm in the same boat. I have Satellite in the LR but there is no way to get it to the bedroom as far as I know. From my reciever, I connect to the TV with an HDMI cable which leaves a coax-out to theoretically connect to the bedroom TV. But there is no way to route the coax that I know of.

    You can back feed the coax system and get at in the bedroom.

    It will just be the same channel a what is in the LR.

    Turn of the antennae booster when doing that.

    You will get either one or the other. You either use the sat OR you use the antennae.

    How would one go about back-feeding to get to the BR?

    Thanks!

    On our 303, we used the antenna feed from living room back to bedroom, unhooked that coax from booster switch and hooked coax to TV.
