Would like to combine signal from Dish network (after the receiver) and signal from Free satellite (AMC 4-satellite) ( after receiver) and over the air programming on one coax cable is this possible and how? So I could watch all 3 programs on same tv?

•OTA into the Ant. input of the STB. Power off STB (or toggle TV/Ant on remote) to pass signal. Take the coax out of the STB and into the Ant. input of the DN box. Pushing the TV/Video button toggles between the two. Of course this only works if you're using the coax I/O's. (not tested, but should work)

•If your TV has multiple inputs this would give you the best solution.

• Buy a low cost video switcher. Some use buttons to select, others are automatic based on input signal input (powered on/off).

You need a filter to filter VHF low from the antenna, and an RF modulator on channel 2 or 5/6 from one satellite box, the other from the default channel 3 or 4 modulator.
