It's working on cable " on" on TV and antenna booster off. ??? But, obviously, there is no cable power to that outlet. Hmmm, maybe antenna and off will mean I do t have to use hdmi? I will try that first. Thanks.

Horseylady, I don't have satellite but my understanding is you have to turn off the TV antenna amplifier, then disconnect the jumper cable. Connect the coax to the input of the jumper and connect the other end to the satellite receiver coax input. From the satellite receiver you have to get the signal over to the TV, either by running coax back down to the jumper plate and connect to the other connector which will goes to the TV back to the TV amplifier plate. The TV would have to be set to Channel 3 or 4. Or you can connect RCA cables to the TV via the audio input panel on the side panel of the audio cabinet. Inside behind the radio is a Sony input box that will switch from the radio/DVD to the TV's RCA cables. The last type of connection is a standalone HDMI cable from the satellite receiver to the TV HDMI. If the TV mount is in the way you can purchase a 90 degree HDMI connector.

Might be easier to install a shelf above he TV to hold the satellite receiver, connect the satellite to the coax connector on the amplifier and run HDMI cable to the TV. Use either the TV speakers or set the Sony radio for TV source for audio. You won't have to worry about disconnecting the jumper.

If you found the jumper, your 211k receiver needs to be connected there. You connect the Sat in on the 211k to the plate connector that goes outside and the TV Set Out connector to the other connector and set the preamp pushbutton like you would for cable. This connection will only give you standard definition. If you have a digital TV you will have to scan.

If the jumper plate is near your TV set, you can use HDMI or component outputs and get HD.

Once we located the loop behind the drawer it was pretty easy from there. The mount plate covered up the HDMI port on the tv so I went and got a 90, not realizing there is a right and left, so we took tv down and cut a hole in the plate to run HDMI cable through.

What I don't understand is the part about not having to disconnect the jumper, Kevin. I need to look at it again when we actually start using it but we have antenna and satellite so, for now, we're happy.

Thanks for all your help. We will be referring to theses posts in the future I'm sure.
