It sounds like the installer made a TV2 backfeed through a single cable. Always leave the separator (triplexer) on the receiver. You will need to rearrange the cables going to your living room (and "my room") such that the dish antenna cable is going to your living room triplexer and 722k. Maybe somebody can come up with a wiring diagram for you.

The satellite signals are currently only routed to your room where there is probably another gizmo that sends the modulated TV1 and TV2 signals back to the junction box.

What you describe as a Holland splitter may actually be a Holland diplexer which is an entirely different device

You need to confirm the true identity of the device (it should be printed on the label) before we can proceed. It also wouldn't hurt to know how many other TVs in the home (if any) are able to tune the modulated channels so we know what else is in play.

It may be as simple as reversing 2 of the wires on the Holland blue diplexer.
Or "red" as the case may be. In any case, I think he needs to leave the diplexer where it is on his receiver, and find the other one to reverse.

From his description, he has a triplexer, which he needs to leave alone. Needs to find the diplexer and switch it there. To the OP, this may be easier to trace the cable all the way from the Dish, but if you have lines installed in your attic, that's likely where it is. Out of sight, out of mind.

How many wires do you got coming out of the wall where the 722 is located now, where as how many wires are at the TV 2 location?

I got 1 wire coming

I only have 1 wire coming out of the wall where my dvr, that wire is plugged in on the diplexer where it says in/out.. and the other cable is in my livingroom coming from the wall to the diplexer and is plugged in where it says vhf/uhf... i already try to switch them, i put the one that is on in/out on the vhf/uhf and the one that was on vhf/uhf on in/out, took my dvr to the living room put everything back together but i didn't got no signal...

At the outside diplexor, switch the line going to the in/out port with the one on the uhf/vhf port. That should be all you need to do

The two cables that don't have the yellow band should be swapped. The cable with the yellow band is the satellite feed and needs to be left alone.
