Combiners don't work with a swm setup. Is that what you have?That's when there is one wire from the dish to the house in an hd setup.

The house has two receivers, one cable to each.

You are probably going to need a distribution amp.

You will need to run a separate cable for the ota antenna because you can't combine signals from and antenna with a swm setup.
