Just looked at this converter and it is very small. I think it could easily be placed in the right cabinet that holds my DVD/VCR and switch box.

Does anyone have the '01 Journey with this set up and is it pretty simple to remove the cover plate in order to access the switch box, etc and hook up the converter?

This cover plate also has the antenna booster switch button and the switch for TV/Radio sound. Anything to watch for?

I hope you're buying this with your coupon? It shouldn't cost more than about $10-$15.00

I just installed a converter box in our 2005 Suncruser. If you have wineguard
switch box you can connect the output of DTV box to Aux input on switch. You will need a ant splitter that will pass power on one port. Use this port to power Wineguard roof ant.

This set-up will use the Aux button to send the DTV output to all of your TVs on channel 3 or 4. The Ant button will still work for Canada stations and US repeater stations. Some Radio Shacks should have the one port power passing splitter. You must use this type of splitter!!

Frank, do you have a Radio Shack part number for the splitter. I have searched the Radio Shack web site and can't find any splitter descriptions stating anything about passing power.
Thanks

If you can not find the one port power pass splitter- I have a few of the correct spliters.
Do not use any other type of splitter!!

You need to pass 12v power to roof ant only.
The DTV converter box may be damaged with any other splitter.
If you need more help, send me a e-mail.

They are also called diplexers.
HERE
This one is available on the web only and costs $19.99.

The one I got at Radio Shack was labeled a satellite splitter, was made by RCA and cost about $3. That was several years ago though.

I saw them at Lowes last week near the regular splitters for about $8 as I recall.

I used mine to connect to an external dish via the service bay TV cable input so I wouldn't have to use an A/B switch.
