Help me hook up TVs

2019 3855 with new Montana TV system. Here's what I want to do: One Wally receiver in the den. I want to be able to watch what is on the Dish receiver in the den on either of the TVs in the bedrooms. I know some way I have to feed signal from the Wally back into she wiring system. Have any of you already figured out how to do this?

My recommendation is to wire the receivers directly to the antenna, meaning don't use the trailers coax. The dish system is coax sensitive to long runs and poor connections. These trailers have tv wiring barely good enough for cable let alone satellite systems. There are many posts on this subject. Good luck.

Sounds like Keystone sold a bill of goods with Key TV. Further adding to the buyers remorse list. Starting to wish I had given more thought to a Grand Design.

You're going to need independent receivers if you want to watch different channels on each TV. OR you can get a wireless HDMI transmitter and receivers but the TV's will be watching the same channel. This is what I chose to do. 140.00 on Amazon

Yes if you buy 2 receivers. The remote will even work although there is a slight lag when selecting channels.

Ours works great sometimes I have to unplug the transmitter and plug it back in when setting up but it's very simple plug and play

I believe they're available separately, the one I have supports up to 3 I think

I think the Dish Pathway x2 allows 2 receivers. So 2 tv's can watch different channels but must be on the same satellite.

But you need 2 recievers. That's why I got the HDMI TX/Rx is no 2nd receiver needed.

I don't care about watching two different channels. I just want to pick up same show as main TV in either of the two bedrooms.

I got an HDMI splitter (one input, 2 outputs) on Amazon. It uses 5 volts, so standard cell phone charger works to power it. I then ran an HDMI cable to the bedroom tv (through the basement). One splitter output goes to the main tv, other one to bedroom. Both display same channels which is fine for us.
