    What diplexer and LNB is needed for DIY install?

    Can it cause a problem using a multi switch, and not using the 14 volt side? I have the switch behind the tv and it is out of the weather. Just wondering. So far I havn,t connected the second receiver yet. I did put the terminator covers that came with it on the unused ports.

    Am radio interference question.

    He lives by himself but Likes to have the light on so his house doesn,t look abandoned. Guess he likes the light on when friends that have vision come to visit.or take him places. He does turn off the light in the daytime so he can use the radio.

    I guess the lite had the old florescent tubes in it. His brother removed the ballast and installed led tubes in the same fixture. I will go look at his light to be sure. Thanks for the reply,s.

    Balun Info?

    Wkbn Youngstown ohio put up a new transmitter last year and the lower tier channels were broadcast at low power for a few months before they uped the power and give the channels new channel numbers. I agree with the pa guy. I am a western pa guy too.

    I had a 2015 ecodiesel that had a recall where someone could hack into the truck and take control . The radio seemed to be working ok when I took it in for the recall but they replaced the radio. I do not recommend anyone to buy an ecodiesel. I traded it with 19.000 miles and the engine was...

    Searching for used C-Bands.

    Dis regard my posting about using styrofoam patterns for a stage play. It is too flamable to use for any inside purpose. My neighbor had some ofit in his house for insulation and it burned his house down in a hurry when he got his wood stove too hot.

    What diplexer and LNB is needed for DIY install?

    I only paid $5.00 for multi switch , so about the same price as a splitter. So with a high freq. spliter and a diplexer you have 2 compenents with a lot more short wires and connections. There is lots of ways to skin the cat.

    OrbyTV: Do-it-yourself Sale

    I am leary of websites that do not give their business location. I could believe that they could sell it for the advertised price as I bought one at best buy for $50 + 6% Pennsylvania sales tax. Hope that it shows up for you!!
