gb387 said:Can Satellite, Cable and an Antenna signal be carried in one coax cable? I now have cable/satellite so I can have both cable and sat. but is there another splitter that will allow for three signals in the same cable?
SmityWhity said:You can always try to combine an antenna signal and a cable signal, but they are more than likely going to interfere with each other, unless you were to modulate the desired channels to a different frequency/channel. Also, there may be some FCC rules you'll have to follow to make sure you are not broadcasting the cable signal over the air (besides possibly broadcasting the satellite signal) to your neighbors.
Hell, I was more concerned with his neighbors watching something not appropriate.Always make sure you terminate any unused cable outlets/splitter ports or it'll contribute to RF leakage thus causing potential disruption of the Aircraft Band.
rcdallas said:Actually you could....
When using the diplexer, use a splitter as a combiner into the diplexer.
This will depend on individual cases... More or less if your picking up 4 different OTA signals, and those channels are not in use on the cable side then you can.
As long as the frequency is not in use or it'll heterodyne (I know I spelt it wrong).
To do as rcdallas suggested, look at this link http://www.satelliteguys.us/attachment.php?attachmentid=11789&d=1158064663 which is a picture posted by "bertbarndoor" on (Page 3) of another thread - http://www.satelliteguys.us/showthread.php?t=76031. This picture is kind of what you want to do, except he is using it for a different result.gb387 said:I know it depends... but you can do that?
I'm not the welcoming parade, but welcome.t.scott said:I personally just set a RV with this kind of set up and all I did was put an A/B switch between antenna and cable
