switching between tripod and rooftop dish
Good morning, I've been searching for a while (with no luck) to see if my idea may work for my parents motor home.
they've got a dish on the roof that finds it's own signal, which is a great feature. However they've been to a couple of places that it won't find a signal. I assume its just going too fast to lock on. In this instance i have them a tripod and a dish that they can aim and lock on. Trouble is how do i wire this in so their tv's work with whatever dish is operating? is there a way? as it stands i've plugged the stand alone dish into the rear of the motor home and just switched the coax i behind the receiver on the main tv. this works for me, but its probably not smart for my parents to try playing with wires......... I didn't know if theres some kind of switch that would bring 2 signals in and 1 signal out. never would both dishes be hooked up at the same, and then which ever dish works for them would just show signals on both tvs. additionally, there is 2 connections at the back of the motorhome, so i could bring 2 coax from the tripod and install 2 of these switches (1 for each reciever)
hopefully this makes some kind of sense, and hopefully i have some kind of option for these guys! thanks
