Iggy: You don't need a splitter to achieve that, just a twin satellite extension cable such as the one linked below which you can just disconnect if you later decide to move your TV back to its original position.

Then you only need to fix the twin cable to the external wall where it cannoit easily be reached by casual walkers. You can get fixings for twin cables easily, they are designed for twin coaxial cables so are wider than those for single coaxial cables. It is wise to maintain the twin feeds in case you wish to record one channel whilst watching another.

Note that you cannot 'split' satellite coaxial cables because of the way the control systems work for each individual element within the LNB (the small 'box' mounted in front of the dish face). The TV or Set Top Box (STB) controls the receiving elements within the LNB to get the services wanted for that device. If two devices wanted different services they would conflict and could possibly damage the LNB and maybe the receiver as well.
