Instructions

  1. 1

    Locate the "Satellite In" on the back of the satellite receiver. This will be a silver-coloured round piece with a hole in the centre. The "Satellite In" could also be labelled "Cable In" or "TV In." This will depend upon the brand of television.

  2. 2

    Connect a piece of coaxial cable from the "Satellite In" to the connection on the wall (or just connect the cable feeding from your satellite if you do not have it connected through your wall).

  3. 3

    Connect a piece of coaxial cable from the "TV Out" on the satellite receiver to the "Satellite In" on the television signal splitter. The "TV Out" and "Satellite In" ports will also be silver-coloured and round with a hole in the centre.

  4. 4

    Attach another piece of coaxial cable from "Out" on the splitter to the first television you would like to feed from the satellite.

  5. 5

    Fasten a piece of coaxial cable from the other "Out" on the splitter to the second television.

  6. 6

    Turn both televisions on and tune them to Channel 3 (or the channel selected on the back of your satellite receiver).
