Moving tv to another cable outlet

My wife decided that she wanted to rearrage two of our rooms and move the TV from the sitting room off of the kitchen to the formal living room. When I hook up the TV to the outlet in the living room it doesn't work. DishNetwork Tech Support says they are going to charge me $100 to come out and make that outlet work. Is there something I can do with the existing connections to reroute the signal from one room outlet to the next?

    thanks for offering a solution...I am sure that works, but I have no idea how to determine which feed is which. I think the splitter is outside and I have unhooked and rehooked to several different configurations to no avail. I may just change to DirecTV and get a 12 month promo price and have them hook up the correct outlet when they come out.

I f you have cable at the new location follow it back to a splitter. Remove the one you used to use and screw in the one you want to use. They should all terminate at the same location.

    As a last resort you might want to what I call 'Ring out the line'. Take a nine volt battery and connect to one end the center and the side of the cable and goto the other end with a 12v bulb and touch the center of the bulb to the center wire and the base of the bulb to the screw cap (threaded part). If it lights up that will identify the cable you are looking for.

I moved the box to another room and now I get a message light and cannot get the power button to work


Especially with newer systems (ie MoCA) you can't just move a receiver from one room to the next, they are set up more like a computer network with one receiver performing most actions and other receivers accessing the main receiver for content. Find the area where the cables all meet and make switch the cable that is going to the room the receiver was in with the cable going to the room the receiver is. If you can't tell which cable is which, you can get cable tracers for a few bucks, but it may be easier to call your provider for a technician.

How can I extend my humax freesat box into another room using coaxial cable


my suggestion, come out of the box with a splicer cable a small 6 inch piece is enough. Get a high quality cable splitter such of what the Cable guys would use, you can buy them at a hardware store. Note that you can get more than a 2 way splitter however the more you split the lower the quality at the other end,. Anyway you split the cable after your cable splitter 1 to the tv, and take the other one which ever room you want.

Hey there! Becki Barned from Dish Network customer service here!!! If you want to do this! You would need a tech to come out and install the DVRs in the new rooms. If you try to move the reveivers, you will only get an Acquiring Satellite Signal message. If this has not been resolved, you can find us on Twitter, or blog back!

I have "2 room service" The #1 TV picture will move-stop-move-stop....The #2 TV is OK. I've tried with no success to contact Dish.


Hi troymass this Mike Houston of DISH Network. The one thing we want to do is a hard reset by pulling out the receiver power cord for 10 seconds and plugging it back in. the receiver will power back on its own and reacquire to get the strongest signal. If the problem still persists you can run a check switch test MENU-6-1-1 and select Check Switch and then TEST. Once test is completed exit out of all menus.

Using the device from the cable outlet


Not a stupid question. You should have received all the cables you need with the Leap Frog. To hook up your tv, take your transmitter and one set of a/v cables, usually red, white and yellow. Do one cable at a time. Your tv outputs should be color coded. You should have one set of three jacks completly open on the back or side of your tv, i.e. labeled component 1, component 2, aux 1, etc. First plug select one set of jacks. Plug a yellow plug into the yellow jack on your tv labeled video out. Plug the white plug into the white jack labeled audio L out. Plug the red plug into the red jack labeled audio R out. Now do the same on the transmitter but the jacks should say in. Yellow, white and red to video, audio L and audio R. Now take your receiver into the other room and do the same thing with the other tv. The cables go from the receiver out jacks to one set of jacks labeled Aux, component, etc like before. Pick a set that has all three open. Red to red, white to white, yellow to yellow. Make sure you then have the transmitter and receiver plugged in. Your remote is supposed to work from your other room. If this solved your problem please rate this as fixed. If you need more help with this just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you. Thanks.
