Outside TV

I want to splice a coxial cable to my storage compartment for watching TV outside. I am currently on satellite with one reciever feeding both TV's. I probably will use the BR TV outside. I need advice on how to route the cable, how to access, and any other information that might be essential. I currently have a winegard portable (and love It) as my satellite. I am on dish network, if that helps anyone. My Monty does not have a cable hookup underneath in the crossover storage like some of the newer models, & I would like to watch TV outside. (Wifey really wants me to, especially in the morning. I'm an early riser and she is not)

Toneman: No splicing of satelite cable -- that is a big no-no since it feeds power to the LNBs through the coax. What I suggest is stopping by your local radio shack, or equivalent, (or stopping a Dish installer) and getting a splitter that is actually for satelite TV -- not cable tv - I've been told they are different - again because of the power being sent back to the LNB. Then you can simply tie the splitter into the cable running from your Winegard portable to the coach before it enters the coach, then run a short piece of appropriate coax to your outside tv.

I think that maybe I'm not explaining myself very well. What I would like to do is to split off from the coax that runs from the rear entertainment center to the BR TV. I currently splitting the feed from the output on the satellite receiver to the Br TV already. I just want to split the routing wire that runs from the rear entertainment center to the BR tv. I know that they will all be on the same channel and thats ok. I will not be splitting the input cable from the satellite dish and the receiver. I just have no clue where to search for the wire.

What about the back of the bedroom TV. Couldn't you put a splitter or splice into it there?

Yes, I have thought of that, but I'm not relly sure how to run the cable down to the pass-thru storage. The tv, as you know, is right in the front in the nose and the pass-thru is back several feet. Not sure how to run the cable where it won't be obivous. I wanted to make this a permenant install if possible.
