sorry. after rereading that I can see where you could be confused. Yes, both boxes are doing the same thing. 4 cables coming off of dish going to, what I assume is a grounding block. Then two to the DVR in living room, One to garage and one to box in bedroom. Bedroom has no issues at all. And like I said, as long as I am tuned to one of the channels before it loses signal, Im good until I change the channel. Like right now, We have been tuned to FOX for the football game in the living room. All is good, but nothing in the garage. Thank goodness for Red Zone Channel.
