Tibo, if you have more than one orbital you will not be able to do this. The way satellite technology operates each receiver must have a dedicated line to it unless you are operating in a QAM environement. QAM'S are usually found in hotels that offer a specific channel line up or large apartment complexes of thousands of units. If you can be more specific about your system such as receiver type, dish type, and LNB and orbital setup I might be able to assist you moreThe short of it is if you split the signal you will only be able to view half of your channels if at all.

Trying to hook tv up outside of house ran cable from box in my house wont run my tv outside can I buy hdmi ******* and have it work ? Thanks


I'm hoping you hooked the cable you ran for the outside tv to the output of the cable box and didn't make the mistake of splitting the cable that comes into the satellite box. If you take the cable that goes to your TV inside you should be able to put a splitter in it and run the TV inside as well as the one outside. If it is a long distance to the outside TV you may want to buy a powered splitter that amplifies the signal. You should also be using RG6 coaxial cable to cut down on lose.

How to use tv split screen


If your TV has picture-by-picture and you have both a TV aerial/antenna and another form of tuner (Satellite box, cable TV receiver etc then you can do it.

Otherwise you'll need a split screen device and two external tuners. That'll be expensive. It would be cheaper to buy another TV.

Splitting a satellite signal to 2 tvs


Do you want to use a separate satellite receiver on each tv or just want to send the picture from one receiver to two tv's? It makes a huge difference. If you do it wrong you can damage both the satellite receiver and the tv, so be careful. Using separate receivers requires a multi switch near the dish. This is necessary because the satellite receiver sends a voltage up to the dish to operate the elecrtonics there. That voltage will damage the dish without that multi switch installed. an ordinary splitter will get the picture from one receiver to two or more tv's as long as the cable length is not too long.

Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service, I will be happy to assist with this. This receiver needs to have a Separator (splitter) that has one coax cable coming from the Satellite into the single side and then two cables out, which connect to the receiver box. The Separator is marked with a SAT1 & SAT2. They will connect up to SAT1 & SAT2 on the receiver box itself. If you are using a different typr splitter, it is probably not rated for the splitting of the Satellite feed. I hope this helps you, if not feel free to contact me.

Unhooked all lines in back of tv cant remember to rehook up have2


granmabj,

There are common connections to each receiver but there are unique connections also depending on the receiver. Solo receivers have a coax cable coming from the Dish outside connected to Satellite In. Duo receivers and DVR HD receivers have the coax cable that comes from the dish outside that connects to Satellite 1 and Satellite 2 using a splitter. There is also a cable (coax, RCA (yellow, white, red) or component (green, blue, red - video, white, red - audio) or an HDMI if HD) connected from the receiver to the TV 1. For a duo receiver TV 2 may be backfed on the cable coming from the dish outside using diplexers. This may sound confusing but you can call 1-800-333-3474 for assistance.

OK. For all you regular Joe's like me here's the fix--plain and simple! I have Dish Networks HD receiver, an LG Home Theater System (LHB953) and an LG HD Television - although I suspect this applies for most LG TV-to-LG Audio Systems used in combination with a HD TV). My problem lied within the LG to LG setting known as SIMPLINK which tries to "auto-configure" everything between LG to LG devices.

Do this to make your HD TV (using Dish/DirecTV) play it's HD video display from the satellite provider but play the audio over the LG surround sound speakers:

1. Plug a HDMI cable from your satelite receiver's set-top-box to your HD TV. This will carry your HD "video" ONLY. Click "Input" on the TV remote until the HD video signal shows your desired TV channel from your satellite provider.

2. Plug an HD Optical cable (the one with the red laser) from your LG HTS (Home Theater System) to your satellite box. This will carry your HD "audio" ONLY.

3. This is the magic everyone seems to be overlooking. On the LG TV remote, go into the menu options and disable SIMPLINK by setting SIMPLINK=OFF. This feature allows the video and audio signals to be split over 2 different ports: HD video goes over the HDMI cable and the audio to go over the HD Optical cable.

Hope this helps!

Dish satellite system with two tvs and 1 hdtv cable


What are you splitting? Coax - just split the out to tv line. A\V cables or componet cables you'll need to split all wires (a\v- yellow and at least white, red to if you want stereo. componet- green, red, blue for video and red and white for audio.

Sat signal reaches only 1 cable outlet


you need to split the line at the receiver box. The signal from the Dish needs 18vdc to the receiver or you'll get NADA.. If I understand you correctly???

Splitting satellite signal


standard spitter can be used for regular TVs. If the signal degrades, it can be boosted with an distribution amp, and could go to 100 TVs on channel 3 (for instance).

Unusable signal


Usually need a second receiver. Cannot just split signal. With some cable providers you can split the cable before it hits the cable box for basic cable channels.

Suggest contacting Cable Company if does not work.

Thanks!
