I have one intellian sat dish but have 3 tvs, one in the main salon and one in each cabin.

Does anyone know the best way to split the signal or get the sat dish signal on all 3 tvs?

The sat dish feeds the receiver. Then from the receiver you can use splitters to feed the 3 TVs. You'll get the same program on all 3 sets.

Maybe I'm kinda spoiled up here with the scenery etc, but I go on the boat to get away from the TV etc.

I'd say take a hacksaw to all the TVs and be live better.

Not that you asked....lol. Not too helpful.

Ok, I'll try to be helpful. The TVs are likely run by HDMI inputs. You can get 1 to 3 'splitters' for HDMI. Look at Amazon. Some require 120VAC, but you have that for your Sat/TVs anyway.

Why can't you just get 2 more receivers? Same as the you would in your home.

I use and love my wireless HDMI splitter. It has two inputs and a wireless and HDMI output. I have one cable box that outputs to 2 TV's, one using HDMI, the other through wireless HDMI to the receiver plugged in to the 2nd TV. Works great 98% of the time, occasionally need to unplug it and plug it back in but otherwise it works great.

I never need to watch something different on my second TV so this option works great using a single cable box:
