Satellite Cable

Maybe someone can answer this question. I have a 2018 FC27FB and outside I have two inputs- one labeled “satellite” and one labeled “cable”. Inside, behind my blu-Ray player, there is only one HDMI cable going to a HDMI splitter that I assume goes out to each tv.

Is there a way to access that satellite coaxial line independent of the cable? My plan was to use the cable input for the tv’s and I would like to use the satellite input for connecting my WeBoost cell signal booster.

Would rather buy what is known than to guess!

Here is a screen shot of a newer version of my switch. I didn’t find the actual unit I bought on Amazon:

I know the easiest is to default to what my DW is watching.

I'm in the research and purchasing process on a 27? currently.
Yes, the suggestion is make your own thread and let mine proceed without branching off to something that has nothing to do with my original post.

Thanks.

$10 USB powered HDMI splitter from Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

There is a USB power port right there and next to the radio. Get some right angle HDMI adapters and some extra cables when you order to handle the hard right turns behind the consoles that you have to make. Remove the radio from the cabinet, find the SAT cable coiled up behind the BluRay player. Remove the HDMI plug that runs to the TV from the back of the player (then, in my case, spend the next 3 hours painstakingly threading each individual wire simultaneously from the HDMI cable that runs behind the wall output that came off the back of the BluRay player but left the metal shielded jacket and plastic plug pulled out and use SuperGlue liberally on the repair). Get double velcro tape to hold down the new Sat receiver and 1TB hard drive (return non working hard drive, repeat). And that is it, easy peasy. Oh, you may notice that I had to drill a hole above the USB power outlet to run all those cables through.
Cheers,
Mitch

My Serenity is very different in setup, I'm trying to figure out how to access the cables behind the dvd player. It is in a chamber below, it looks like it should just be access by a panel on the left with two screws, but it doesn't come out very easy and not wanting to force it.

I found that I need to add a matrix to get high def cable to the tvs...my SD box is junk, but has HDMI.....hmmm
