Dish Network and the Built In Cable Connection

On my Jay Flight 26BHS, I'm trying to hook my Dish Network Dish and Box using the preinstalled cable connection on my trailer. Are the two not compatable? Will only be able to use Cable instead of Satellite Service with the built in cable connection? And yes, I do have the OTA button turned off.

Thanks,

John

Do you have a seperate coax outlet next to your antenna hookup by the TV?

So far my searches have produced nothing about my problem.

Do you see two coax jacks with a short piece of coax between them anywhere near the antenna amplifier?

I only have one coax jack with a lighted button and a 12 volt receptacle all on the same face plate.

I can tell you that in 2010 the Jayflight G2`s were deemed "Satellite ready" in the brochure (whatever that means) and the standard Jayflights such as mine were not. I only have one coax connector also. I have never tried to hook up to satellite so no help there.
