How can I get my satellite and old tv to play nice?

I have an old Sanyo tv: model DS19530. Haven't turned it on in a couple years. I hooked it up to my satellite and can't get a picture. (This is just strictly coax, tv is too old to even have RCA hookups.) I don't have a second receiver so I hooked up a splitter to just mirror the signal. My newer tv is working fine but not the Sanyo. I have checked the splitter backwards and forwards, switching the cables and it doesn't matter which output I use, the Sanyo will not show a picture and the new one will. I hooked up a nintendo to it, flipped to channel 3, works fine. But no satellite? I have flipped through all the menu options and other than switching it from air to cable, I don't see what else I can change. Help? Suggestions? Thanks!

PS Called the helpline. The guy knew less than I did.

Does the satellite box via coax work on a newer tv?
Also, please tell us your satellite receiver model. DirecTV or Dish Network?

Sorry, ignore my first question. It appears it does work. Does it work on the Sanya without splitting perhaps?

Directv. And no.
