You must have a cable to the upstairs bedroom that you want it in. If you do you just need to connect it the receiver. Sometimes this is done using diplexers. Do you have a central point where all your cables come together?

well i can see 2 wires coming from roof..1 goes into side of house to bedroom that goes into 311 receiver,the other goes down to basement into splitter...i know there are more wires going around,such as the wire going to main tv(tv1) in living room..one wire from basement splitter goes directly into tv for tv2...im guessing i can just go from splitter in basement to tv in bedroom,then i would have the one wire that goes into 311 going nowhere unless i need to hook it up to complete curcuit,for lack of a better term.im sure im leaving something out as far as set up of these wires,not as simple as cable.

it should be a Diplexer, not a splitter, but yes...
the easiest thing to do would be to run a wire from the diplexer to the room you would like to move tv2 to.

then you mention the 311... are you wanting to move the tv2 side to the room where the 311 is now? or to a different room?

yes,diplexer..my mistake...basically i want to switch the tv's...tv2 to upstairs,311 to basement..so ill just run cable up to bedroom then run cable from roof(cable to 311) to basement into 311..that simple? i may have to extend roof cable to reach,but it shouldnt be that hard.
