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.

How do i get the TV to play satellite? it just says weak signal when I turn the tv on. JVC RM-C18G


It has to be on the right channel. If you are supposed to be on channel 3, 61, 73, 113 (ask the satellite company which one you should be on) then you'll have to change the channel. If you are not supposed to be on a channel you have to find out which input you're supposed to be on (video 1, video 2, video 3, av 1, av 2, av 3, hdmi 1, hdmi 2, input 1, input 2, input 3 for example).

No antenna level at all.


Do you mean no signal strength? Do you have an internal or external aerial antenna? Is the signal split between multiple TVs? You can look at antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for the recommended antenna type and direction and available channels in your area. Antennaweb is very conservative in its advice (and won't list some channels). You should also check that you have no damage to your wiring. Part of my house was wired with twist-on connectors. These have come loose from the wire at the amplifier/splitter that lets us share the signal for two TVs. The crimp-on connectors have been damaged by our pets running through in other locations. Lightning damaged one amplifier/splitter a few months ago.

Indoor antennas are even harder to get a good digital signal.

If you have a satellite dish, that often means the dish isn't aligned correctly.

I 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).

Lost satellite signal after hooking up an hdtv


Provided you did not make any changes to the cabling through out the house there is no reason that you would have lost satellite signal except if something is in front of the dish, some one moved the dish e.g. child bumping into it if it is on a pole, or there is a major storm in your area e.g. blizzard, hurricane etc. You also may have snow build up that may have caused this issue or a form of wildlife that has decided to use the dish as a perch and is blocking the LNB's. The most likely result would be trying to split a signal that is coming from the dish going to another satellite receiver or the multi-switch. There are a few ways to get a signal to that TV.
1. RESTORE THE SYSTEM TO ITS ORIGINAL CONFIGURATION.
2. Either come off the multi-switch in the attic or outside the home and run new lines to the new receiver if you have one for this TV.
3. You can run new lines from the dish to the new TV if your system has an available port(s).
4. This is the least preferred by most homeowners as it will result in two tvs viewing the same programming- You can put a splitter into the line going from a receiver to the tv and run one of the out ports to the new tv and the other back to the original tv.
I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

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!
