How to connect an additional cable to my dish

I am adding a TV to my patio and want to run an additional coax cable to the dish. I will move a receiver from an existing room to the patio when I am going to watch outside. I looks like the dish only has a connection for 1 cable.

Locate the multi switch or swm splitter ( usually in the basement or attic) and connect to one of the available ports

Can I add a splitter to the dish and run a separate cable outside to a different receiver?
