Hey all,
This is a pretty basic question, but, since I don't know the answer, I'll ask anyway. Can I use a diplexer to combine the two satellite feeds from my dish to my house? I know I would have to use another inside the house to seperate them again, but I didn't know if it will only work with a satellite signal and an OTA signal.
Thanks for your help (in advance).

IF they share frequencies ranges, and since satellite signals usually do, no, they would interfere with each other.

Like you said, diplexers only work with OTA, UHF/VHF or CATV and satellite signals. You need a switch to combine different LNBs.

Could anybody make a recommendation on a good diplexor to use and what to look for. I need pick one up and would like to get one locally. I have a rat shack nearby and Lowe's, Wal Mart, etc.

Thanks

If you are trying to combine satellite signals from two satellites only, you could use a DP21 switch with DISH Network equipment and if you have DirecTV, sorry!
