The DishPro Plus 44 switch (DPP44) only works to combine and separate the signal on one line for DishPro Plus receivers. That would mean: 522, 322, and 921. The 721 still has to have two feeds.

The 721 is also DishPro Plus compatable.

I am not sure if you can use a diplexor with the DPP44 or not.

Interesting. I was told that it was not DPP compatible since it was introduced a couple years before DPP technology came out.

Did they update this with a software release?

That will be great news if it's true.

Yup I have my 721 hooked up through my DPP44 and it works great. :)
 
Just FYI, DP+ support was just added to the 921 with L186 in mid-July. In other words, fancy E* labels and paint don't mean crap - about the only one you can count on is the DP logo on an LNBF.

Meanwhile, back at the OP's question :)

He should be able to use a diplexor just fine - same as with ordinary DishPro. There's no electrical difference, just commands. I always put them on the 'inside' of the run:

DPP+44 ---> PowerInserter ---> Diplexer ---> Diplexer ---> Separator ---> Receiver
