    If it doesn't work I might cut it open to see what is in it. Could be fun

    Now there is some discussion about the actual splitter, I may have to try it, just the splitter.
    Back I. The day there were stories of a DPP-44 passing OTA crews to the sat 1 feed so one didn't 2-4 extra diplexors in the area of the switch.
    I've always believed there are the specs for something, then there are the 'how it actually performs'.
    I might have to break out my o-scope to see what I see, at least what the scope sees in auto mode!

    Dish Home Protection covers all owned equipment as well, and it stays OWNED. I've had to replace over $1,600 in OWNED DVR's alone, and when I upgraded to the Hopper, I still have my owned ViP's that Dish replaced more than once for me. I shall be selling those soon. So, a big savings on $$$. Remember, you don't have to add HPP until you need it, and then keep it long enough to avoid the $25 early cancellation, or even just pay the $25 cancellation as it sure is cheaper than replacing an expensive STB like the HWS on your own dime. HPP also covers all labor. I know some people here think DHPP is a rip, but for me, all my hardware and labor costs saved far outweigh DHPP's cost. I have come out way ahead, but perhaps others don't have failures, and I can understand that.

    Good thought to keep in mind.

    I also have a PDI 1 x 8 5-1000 MHz cable TV splitter. It is the same footprint as the D* one, but isn't as tall, measuring about 2-3 mm shorter.

    I wish I was back in WA state where one of my lab friends had access to a real time X-ray video system.
