How to Install the Wiring for a DISH 322 Receiver

Updated April 17, 2017

A DISH 322 receiver is a satellite television receiver for the DISH network. To receive satellite television through the network, you need a DISH antenna installed on the outside of your residence. Once the antenna is in place, installing the wiring for the DISH 322 is simple. You need only input and output wires to complete the installation.

Connect a coaxial cable from the wall jack to the "Satellite In" jack on the back of the DISH 322 receiver. The antenna is wired to a central splitter, which in turn is wired to various wall jacks in the house. The central splitter and wall jacks are often installed and wired when the house is built.

Connect either a yellow RCA video cable or an S-video cable from the back of the DISH 322 receiver to an available video input on the back of your TV. The RCA cables come with the DISH receiver. An S-video cable can be purchased separately.

Connect red and white RCA audio cables from the back of the DISH 322 receiver to the audio inputs that correspond to the video input on the TV that you used in step 2. Both the audio and video cables go into the top row of output jacks in the middle of the back of the receiver.
