Dish / Tailgater

Have an older Dish Tailgater that was used on our 5th wheel. Have the Dish box. Took the bluray box out and found the coax cable for satellite . Found a splitter in cabinet also ,
How do I connect Dish receiver to all this ?
What splitter do I need? What model brand ? Does Amazon carry them? How do I make the connections. (old grandpa , technically challenged)
Currently confused. Need to feed bluray and Dish to both tv's.

To use both the Blueray DVD player and DISH satellite you will need a new powered splitter that allows two inputs and at least two outputs. Your current powered splitter allows one input and two outputs. The outputs are for the two separate televisions and the two inputs are for the Blueray DVD player and the satellite receiver. Your dish is connected to the SAT connector on the outside of the trailer. Dish receiver input connector is connected to the SAT coax cable up near the Blueray DVD player. Output connector is connected to the input on the splitter.

I am in the process of hooking up my sat dish, blue ray, roku, etc. I plan on using a 4 x 2 hdmi matrix switch.

Are there any particular brands that anyone can recommend. Don't want to wire it twice. Thank you, Dave

Just make sure it’s a powered splitter.

Thanks DoubleR but does it need to support HD or does the existing support HD formats. Possibly the television and blue ray player are not HD. I am not sure but if I was to upgrade the blue ray or televisions should I not get support for HD?


Thanks
