The Traveler type will receive signals from all the satellites at the same time, but each Wally has to be wired to the dish individually. If only one coax is connected to the dish and split later in the wiring you will only get on channel.
Hope this helps,
Some of what you said is true, but not all.
It all depends on which Trav’ler he has (if he indeed has a Trav’ler.
The Winegard Hybrid Travler (latest model) has just one coax from the dish (plus the power cord).
In order to connect two or more Wally’s, each with it’s own programming…
you need what is called a DPH42 Power Inserter along with a 4-way splitter.
Then from the splitter, a coax runs back to the dish and is connected to Port C.
