Good luck, you got this!

Once I had the right instructions (posted as .pdf by GREENFLAG earlier in the thread), and the right MONOPIECE 4x2 splitter, it was simple. The ONLY thing that was a challenge was working with the cables and boxes in such a confined shelf space area. Even having unscrewed the shelf that covers the blu-ray, there was still restriction of movement because the shelf is still there....just has some freedoms of movement.....and the cord lengths of the cables are not the longest...so that kinda restricts movement...there are still some cables coming up through the circular hole in the back corner from the radio area. Ive attached photo of how mine turned out. I ended up setting the monopiece splitter to make it sit "level" and to have the Receiver ID info handy.

Good luck!!

Did you use the 12v pin power or another option for the sat receiver. I didn't have the splitter and am on the road so we are going to a Best Buy this morning to purchase one.

I went strictly by the instructions in the .pdf. Airstream a Tech a Support can also email you the .pdf instructions. Best Buy did not carry the Monopiece 4:2 splitter... I had to order it online.

My Wally receiver uses 120VAC power.

Hey there, forgot to answer this part.... I used the 120V plug in for power of the sat. Just don't plug it into the "Inverter" plug receptacle.

How did it go?

We left this open by error. RLNSTN and I continue our conversation off-forum. The install was delayed until I returned home this past week. All is well and I've gained another AS friend I hope to meet one day.

I was glad to read this string of posts. I am having a problem with not getting all of my satellite channels. I have checked connections at the street side SAT/Cable plug and both connections are tight. I will check with a meter tomorrow. I have replaced the factory splitter with a 4x2 splitter and replaced the BluRay player with a wireless unit. At first, (last Spring) the DISH setup worked great,but it seems to have degraded. I have ordered a new coax and will try connecting directly to the receiver. If I still have the same problem, I will contact DISH and Winegard again and see what my options are. I am glad to learn that the SAT cable is a home run from the outside connector to the electronics box. That will help when I call about my problem.

You guys are great!

LOS. Do you have it when looking at the satellites. Don't think you said anything about it.
