Having Dish service installed in only one room is a real let-down for a multi-person home. Knowing how to split a coax signal is a simple concept to learn that will save you money down the road, allowing you to install and enjoy your Dish service in multiple rooms. Installing dish service in multiple rooms adds the benefit without adding cost.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Twist the head of the coax cable wire, connected to the coax connection in the wall, counterclockwise. This will loosen the connection with every twist and will eventually disconnect the coax cable wire.

  2. 2

    Insert the head of another coax cable wire onto the coax cable wall connection and twist it clockwise. Twisting the head of the coax cable wire will tighten the connection to the wall outlet.

  3. 3

    Connect the other side of the coax cable wire to the "cable-in" port of the 2-way coax cable splitter. Look at the 2-way coax cable splitter. Notice on one side there are 2 ports and on the other side there is a single port. The single side of the 2-way coax cable splitter is the "cable-in" port where the cable signal goes into, while the 2-port side is the "cable-out" port where the cable signal is split into 2 so you can install Dish connection to another TV in the house.

  4. 4

    Position the head of the coax cable you disconnected from the wall in Step 1 over one of the "cable-out" ports of the 2-way coax cable splitter and twist it clockwise to tighten it in place. The open port of the 2-way coax cable splitter can be used to connect another TV in the same room or you can run a coax cable from it into another room so you can watch your Dish service there.
