I have a tv setup in a bonus room in our detached garage. I already have a Cat-5 cable run underground to that building and would like to use that cable to carry the satellite signal from the house. I need a coaxial to ethernet converter and then an ethernet to coaxial converter to connect to the satellite provider's box, which then connects to the tv. Any ideas?

Somehow i read that wrong.... But you can't actually do what you're trying. Your dish is powered by the receiver, you will have to use a standad RG6 cable. Perhaps an alternative would be to put a receiver somewhere close to your line where you can connect an rg6 to the dish, then use a balun from that point.
