    Hi, I have a 2006 Fleetwood Revolution LE and I switched the old satellite out to new dish Wally system. There are two outputs on new dish as there were on old, one for front tv and one for bedroom. Front TV is no problem but rear tv cable runs to entertainment cabinet above driver but can't find other feed from satellite so they can operate independently. Both RG6 cables from dish are black and everything else in coach is grey cable. Anyone know where I can find second dish feed cable? thanks

    Not sure if this is going to be helpful, but our Sat feed coming into the coach goes to the Wally first, then to the signal splitter (control box) and gets fed to all tv's in the coach.  If you want to watch more than one Sat channel on different tv's you will need a second Wally.

    Thanks, I have two Wallys one in front and one in bedroom but can't find other feed from dish on roof to make them operate independently

    In dual Wally setups I’ve seen, they are both stacked and mounted in the same place.  When you have a couple free hours, call DISH support number and have them walk you through the setup.  1 of those hours will be sitting on hold, but the second one should help you resolve your problem.

    Unless your satellite dish is one of the larger dishes that has multiple LNB's you can not actually use 2 boxes. The small dome dishes receive a voltage signal from the box to tell it which satellite to cook to for a given channel. Technically if you have 2 boxes they would both have to be looking for a channel that is on the same satellite or they would be sending conflicting voltage requests to the dish and it would not know what to do.

    Thanks for all the responses, the second cable was tucked up in ceiling above bedroom tv. So from satellite the black RG6 cables go to front and to rear locations but here is still a grey RG6 from rear tv to entertainment center above driver. Im guessing for park cable usage or antenna. Thanks again.
