Default Getting TVs to wok in new-to-us 2005 Ultra Supreme.

I know, but the title says 2005. Just picked it up, and it appears there is no direct to tv coax installed, apparently it is all analog switched with channel control via a VCR. Is this correct?? Anyway, I will be installing a newer DVD player, digital converter, and Dish Network receiver. Any suggestions?? Or things that I need to know about this rig??

Had to dig in a bit, but I found that there really is coax to both TVs, but it has been disconnected from the antenna switch box. The connections on the back of the switch are antenna, cable in, and tv out. Normally, tv out would feed into a splitter then to both TVs. Instead, someone has installed a short wire from TV out to a new outlet, which they marked "cable". In reality, it would be "cable or Antenna". Of course, with antenna now, I would need a digital converter, but that is a different problem. Apparently they did not know that the output connection of the switch panel is the same as the one on the back, that someone put in a lot of effort to change. The outlet on the front and the one on the back act just like a splitter to provide connection to two TVs.
I could put it back, but would have to remove the cabinet front to get to the wires and find everything, and really don't want to do that right now. Will make it work with what we have.
There is another new outlet in the cabinet, marked "cable or satellite out". It has real RG9 cable, and I hope it is actually connected to the "satellite" connection back in the power bin on the back of the coach. We'll see tomorrow. Does anyone know what the original factory setup was on these coaches??
