When I was using the SAT stuff a few years back i found it much easier to use the VIDEO OUTPUTs from the SAT RECEIVER I brought with me from the house and routed this to a VIDEO INPUT on the trailer HDTV set. After the NATIONAL BROADCAST switched to full blown high def digital TV from the local towns I stopped bringing along my SAT TV stuff...
Using the older SAT DISH setups I routed two RG cables from the two SAT DISH connections into two different SAT Receivers one located for the front TV set and the other for the bedroom TV setup. Then used the VIDEO OUTPUT connection from each SAT RCVR to the HDTV setup. Did not disturb any of the trailer TV wiring for the CABLE/OTA setups.
When in use I just select CABLE/OTA TV to watch standard TV signals then switch to VID1 to watch SAT TV. All with my TV remotes... Never leave my easy chair...
I haven't used the CH 3/4 modulator thing in years now...
Others probably did it differently haha... It was a keep it simple hookup for me...
