Inside my 36RE there are two wall plates with coaxial RF connections inside theleft side cubby hole under the backwall TV shelf. One of the plates has two RF coaxial connectors and the other plate has one RF coaxial connector.Iknow that the upper connection on the plate with the two connectors is for thesatelliteconnection but Idon't know what the otherconnectionsare for.Does anyone know?In the cubby hole on the right side is where my LGBlue Ray player is. Behind the TV is a wall plate with 2 RF connections, the upper connection is forthe Antenna coxial connection to the TV but I don't know what the lower RF connection is for. Again,ifanyone knows please let me know. I am trying to find out how to connect my satellite dish receiver to the TV withoutrunning the cable out in front oftheleft cubby hole to the back of the TV without cutting an access hole in the conunter top surface.

Charlie,



At your main TV location, one of those coaxial connections for signal from your roof antenna, one is for satellite. I do not know what the third connection is for unless it is to send a signal from you DVD player to your bedroom TV.



On my 36RL, there is a antenna amplifier mounted on the ceiling above the bedroom TV which has to be turned on to get signal to both TV's.



Does anyone know if there is a way to post a PDF document in our forum message? I have a sat/cabl/electrical drawing that I requested from Redwood that I could post or send by PM if your email adrs or linkis available in your user profile.

Hoosierguy, I certainly wouldn't mind if you could send those drawings to me as well:
wolfnot@me.com


I've been unable to get anything from the antenna yet (cable's fine, no satellite installed). I know where the antenna amplifier is installed (by the TV in the bedroom), but button in or out, no difference, don't get anything but snow.

I might have a disconnected/broken wire somewhere, or perhaps no power to the amplifier?

Thanks in advance

Hello DoddCP, thanks for the offer, I have a 36RE on order
that should be here by mid Feb. and if you could send them to me I would appreciate
it. My friend and I got Redwoods on the same day his (36RL known as Red 1) was
on the lot and I ordered mine (36RE known as Red 2) is on the way both have the
full body paint Black & Maroon we always travel together so that is going
to be a site going down the road . I traced his cable route and have it set so
he can watch cable/antenna on one TV and satellite on a different one at the
same time. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />

On the 36RL what can be done is

Connect satellite dish cable to satellite cable in on the
outside connection.

Connect cable from wall plate (satellite in) to receiver

Connect </span>HDMI cable
from receiver to one of the aux HDMI inputs on TV to see satellite in living
room.

Buy an AB switch and connect RF cable from satellite
receiver RF output to AB switch A side

Take RF cable from wall plate going to living room TV and
make sure it is connected to the wall plate that is label satellite.

Take a cable from same wall plate label cable and connect it
to AB switch B side

Take cable from AB switch out and connect to satellite out.

Go to Bedroom tv make sure cable from TV is connected to satellite
connector on wall plate.

If you connect TV up in Basement connect to satellite
connector on wall plate.

In living room

When you want to see satellite in the living room you can
select aux input on TV that you have HDMI cable connected to. If you want to see
cable that’s connected from outside connection select B on AB switch. If you
want to see from your antenna make sure booster is on and </span>select
B on AB switch. And make sure you are on the cable input on your TV.

IN bedroom or basement (have to see same thing)

If you want to see satellite in bedroom/basement select A on
AB switch If you want to see cable that’s connected from outside connection select
B on AB switch. If you want to see from your antenna make
sure booster is on and </span>select B on AB switch.

On all TV’s when connected using cable or antenna you may need to do a channel search on the TV or you will
get snow.
Hope this helps </span>

Depending on what service and what receiver, you may not have an RF Out Jack. All the newer DirecTV HD receivers we have don't have an RF out jack, just the HDMI or RCA Jacks.
