Anyone know what TV signal(s) the outside cable connection passes? I looked in the manuals but couldn't find the answer. I have a hunch it's just the antenna since there isn't a button on the signal selector box for the outside jack. This is the outdoor TV connection by the outside radio in the front passenger side compartment.

Ours is for an external satellite dish and it appears on a wall plate in our entertainment cabinet.

That connector on mine gets the same signal as the main TV in the salon. I assume they're the same. Hook up a small TV to check it out. I use that connector for my outdoor entertainment TV.
Best regards

Ours receives the same as the bedroom TV. In fact, mine is split off in the area behind my One Place panel in the hallway.

My owner's paperwork tells me mine receives the same signal as the bedroom TV.

Maybe I need to rethink this. I always use the satelite receiver and therefore the bedroom TV is always the same as the main. So my outside connector could very well be split off as Dan and Paul's.
Since there is just the two of us we seem to always watch the same stuff and have rarely used the crankup for local stations.

Oh - cable OUT he is asking about. Pretty sure ours is off one tap of a splitter leading to the bedroom TV.

Our outside entertainment center cable connector is tapped off the rear tv.

If I am correctly understanding what you are saying, I presume you have a single receiver?? We have a Dish "dual" satellite receiver. The rear sat signal normally runs on channel 66 and uses an RF remote, and front on 3 or 4 depending on interference from local channels and uses an IR remote. If you switch ANY TV to 3 or 4 (depending on which the front is using at the time) you can watch the sat channel the front is watching, likewise with channel 66 on any TV you can watch whatever the rear is watching. But if you change the rear TV feed at the switch selection box from SAT to ANT, now both the rear & the outside TV are on antenna and neither can view satellite on 3/4 OR 66.

I also misunderstood your question.

The outside TV outlet in the outside entertainment center is the same feed that goes to the bedroom TV. There is a splitter in the bedroom TV coax so you won't be able to send a raw satellite signal over that coax unless you remove that splitter.
