This is the email I received

Correct--you need 2 lines from a dual-LNB to feed 2 receivers.

> So I need to add another input to the outside of trailer?
>

It cannot be done.

> I want to hook up 2 DTV receivers in my camper but I only have 1 input on the
outside of trailer. Can you explain to me how this can be done? I am using a 18"
dish with dual LNB if needed.

SWM is a really neat setup - it allows basically allows a single coax from a dish to feed up to 8 tuners. In order to do this - you have to have all compatible equipment - meaning a Dish/LNB that supports SWM, splitters, and a supported receiver.

Now mind you, I have not toyed with the newer Jayco coax with the number wire so I may just be 1/2 right here....Your single wire from the dish would come into the camper and I believe it goes directly to main TV. From there you would install a SWM splitter. One output from the splitter would go to tv#1 and the other would feed back to the coax that goes to tv#2 -- and wallah you configure the tuners and you are in business.

I will tell you that if you are not technical in nature, the new SWM stuff can be confusing and is not as straight forward as the old single LNB stuff. Also the newer dishes that support SWM receive multiple sats and are a little harder to aim.

Do you want to watch both TVs at the same time or just one at a time? I believe you could use it as is with your existing equipment if you just want one at a time.

You can't do it with an 18" dish. I have the Slimline dish, but the SWM system is alive and working in my 5'er with only one RG6 coax coming in from the outside. I have two TV's and 2 DVR's and both are connected via the Whole Home System.

I drew a picture up for another forum the way that I think that the wiring works in the Jayco with the A/B jumper.



If this is the way that it works, you could use the RF output of the satellite hooked up to the B port to route a picture throughout the camper's other TV jacks. I know Dish has dual tuner receivers where one receiver can drive 2 TV's which in this case would work perfectly.

Thanks for the reply's, I am going to add another outside jack so I can get two different channels instead of watching the same on both. It will be pretty easy to do and if I can find the factory looking connection with cover it will look as if it was factory installed.
