The back of the satellite box does not have an antenna in.RMRun the OTA aerial separately, as you have, going to the TV’s antenna connection. Use the TV as the switch between them. When you get your new amp you can plug the OAT directly to it and use the amps as the switch.DH says to get the satellite signal to the TV in the guest room we need to use NTSC because of the distance. That TV does have component and composite inputs but its 50 feet away. He thinks there will be too much signal loss.At 50 feet there is signal loss so you’ll need a line amp such as this: http://www.walmart.com/ip/RCA-10dB-Video-Signal-Amplifier/11...Tell hubster NTSC is a broadcast transmission standard as to color/lines per inch, etc., and is not associated with line impedance. Unless it's okay to run a composite line 50 feet? It's probably more like 38 but I don't think they make them to odd lengths.Run a coax (RG-6 or RG-11) cable – it’s far cheaper and, using a line amp, gives a clear signal. Rule of thumb is adding ten percent to the final cut length so, for 40 odd feet add at least four or five feet. Turns take up more length than originally estimated.MichaelR
