You can still use a splitter but it must be a DirecTV approved one (called a green label as the splitter's label is green in color).
Okay let me talk this threw so it is straight in my head and sure I under stand.
Remove cover of amplifier and but a 3 way splitter meant for digital in coax in series with coax for antenna to amplifier. I suppose will need make short piece of coax cable up to do that. Then add from splitter, make up another short one to output of blue ray DVD.
Find a weather proof coax receptacle that I can mount probably close to existing one use for park cable and run RG-6 from it directly to input of DirecTV receiver.
So coax from portable dish to my new weather proof connection receptacle. Then be RG-6 from that receptacle to input of DirecTV receiver. Output of DirecTV receiver to newly installed 3 way splitter.
I then should have DirecTV to bedroom TV, TV in living area above bunk, and finally to outside TV. This sound right?
Not sure can find the splitter here anymore don't have a Radio Shack or other electronic supplies so unless Home Depot, Lowes or Walmart has the splitter will have to order it online or wait tell traveling in spring to Phoenix to get it. I suppose somebody like Crutchfield will have what I need if order online.
Sound like I got it? Sorry about being so dense been over 50 years sense dealt with anything of this nature.
