adding direct to 2016 axis

I am thinking of adding portable direct TV to front TV only. I assume the hdmi cable goes to TV hdmi 2 on mine. Where do the male coax connector next to the amp button and light go? I would like to run cable to outside cable connector if possible. Any info or pictures would be helpful. Thanks

Hugh, Were you able to resolve your issue? I just spent half a day working on my cables in order to get my satellite working and may be able to give you some insight.

No idea. My 24.2 does not have one above the sink. I hooked up my portable satellite yesterday and learned that the cable connector outside did have RG-6 (satellite compatible cable) installed, but that cable led to the TV amp switch plate in the cabinet over my main TV. The problem with my configuration is that the RG-6 cable from the outside connector ended at the amp switch and then the rest of all the cables feeding from the amp switch to the TVs cable connectors was regular coaxial cable. So when I tried to connect from the main TV cable connector, the satellite dish was unable to get powered by the receiver. I ended up connecting the outside RG-6 cable directly to my receiver and the satellite system now works.
