    TV Cabling question

    Just bought a 31QBS. I was wondering if all the cable outlets in the unit are on a loop, or do they homerun the cables back to the input and use a splitter.

    The gist of my question is to figure out the best way to use a satellite dish and multiswitch to allow differnet channels on each outlet.

    Thanks

    Kelly, We bring the main line in from out side to the power booster, which is a plate that has the red power light on it.....That is where the main line splits and feeds the rest of the trailer........This is where you need to put the dish boxes before the splits.

    Thanks

    Awesome! Thanks Mcreech and SmokeyBare. I didn't know HOOT existed.

    I love this site already.

    Welcome to Heartland!!

    The link to HOOT is pretty good for adding connections and detailed for a 5vr. Here is another link to check out. It is on a different forum but you will find most of the people there are also on Heartland Owners Forum as well.

    The link is to a modification list. Just click on the one for the satellite mod:

    Thanks Mike. Just registered on that forum. The mods are great. We had the same "door coming off the rail" issue when we got home from the dealer. I had been thinking of a way to modify the snap's but maybe the hook and latch is the way to go.

    Thanks for the link.
