Surely it must be here I thought as I looked and looked. Finally I had to remove the screws to the triangular (sort of) panel giving access to the area behind the speaker. It took a flash light and a mirror and a lot of poking around to finally find the coax wire buried at the bottom of the other rat's next of wires that is back there. By the way, someone here said the coax is white. Mine was black. So if you can't find your satellite coax wire try looking in this area.

Now that you mention it, my friend said he had to fish around behind the Clarion to find his HDMI connection; mine was right behind my Blueray.

We have had Dish for 3 years now. It has worked flawlessly. One note if it hasn't already been said here, calling for locals is a must if you have Dish also in your home. The Dish app and website will not work to change the locals. Fortunately, it only takes a few minutes.

We also did not have a SAT wire in the electronic cabinet when we looked for it. We have a 2019 classic 30. To find the wire you have to take the right side of the TV cabinet out and you will find it there. Too short to reach the electronic cabinet. Why too short? They ran the SAT through a harness under the dinette seat in the wrong direction and had to double back when going up the wall. It then becomes too short. You will need to add a three-foot extension to the wire and route up to the cabinet. This has happened to more Classics than just mine.

We have heard that Dish has improved upon their satellite antenna. If anyone has more details or can ploint to an article about it, I would appreciate it.
