How to Wire Multiple TVs to One Direct Receiver

By Greyson Ferguson

DirecTV satellite receivers typically have one connection output, allowing you to hook up one television at a time. However, if you are looking to wire multiple TVs to a single DirecTV receiver, it is possible with the aid of a channel splitter. This splitter splits the satellite signal from one output to two or more. This is especially helpful if you don't want to pay the extra funds for additional satellite receivers.

Things You'll Need

  • DirecTV receiver
  • Channel splitter
  • 3 (or more) coaxial cables

Step 1

Connect the first coaxial cable into the "Out" port of the DirecTV receiver. Insert the opposite end of the cable into the lone "In" port on the channel splitter.

Step 2

Attach the second coaxial cable to one of the "Out" ports on the splitter. Plug the free end of the cable into the "In" port on your television.

Step 3

Power on the television and set it to channel "3." The DirecTV receiver programming appears on the set.

Step 4

Repeat the connection process with all of the other TVs you want wired to the DirecTV receiver.
