Minnie Winnie TV system for Bedroom

I have a 2022 Minnie Winnie with a Winngard Satellite & Dish TV connected W/ Wally for salon area. Is there a way to have both TV's set up for Satellite? I stayed at an RV park with no internet or Wifi. My bedroom TV didn't pick up a single channel?

Any ideas on how to at least get OTA channels in this Minnie Winnie.

Thanks !

Well, the only way to get Dish to work on the bedroom TV would be to have the same Dish channel as the lounge TV. Getting two different Dish channels is technically possible but not feasible on your equipment. You would need a larger satellite dish like the Travl’r with multiple LNBs. The small Winegard dishes have only one LNB. Dish puts alternating channels on different satellites - 110 and 119. When you move sequentially through the channels the dish physically moves between satellites.

The larger, folding rooftop dishes are equipped to lock on to both channels at the same time so multiple receivers can be utilized to display different programming on different TVs at the same time.

Many small dome dishes advertise “two outputs” but in reality this works terribly. If the primary tv is watching content on satellite 110 then the second tv can only watch content on that satellite, too. And if the primary tv changes channels this also affects the second TV.

Now, watching OTA channels on one TV while watching satellite tv on the other depends on the connection you are using on the main TV. If you connect the main TV via HDMI then you should be able to watch OTA tv on the bedroom. But, of course, you need to press the cable/ant switch on the cable input to select antenna and power the amplifier for the antenna, select Antenna as the tv source in the tv menu and the search for available channels in the menu as well.

Hope this helps.

Hi. I have a 2022 WM 26T model. I use a device called "Action Tec" It is HDMI and has a transmitter at the main TV and a receiver at your bedroom TV. The Transmitter sits between the Wally receiver via HDMI and the main TV. It stays there ALL the time. The receiver is connected via HDMI to a HDMI port on the bed room TV. Watch local TV or switch the bedroom TV to the proper HDMI port and watch Satellite. My Wally Remote is RF and can transmit from the Bed room to the main Wally receiver to change channels etc. Works fine.

I figure when we arre in bed?, the Main TV is off or doesn't matter what channel it's on because you can change the Satellite from the Bed room. Make Sense????

I think they may have changed the name of Action Tec, Try Amazon and search for HDMI Video/Audio Transmitter-Receiver. $149.00 ???

I use one one the ActionTec on my home system too I transmit my bed room signal to my kitchen TV.
I hope this helps you.
