Hey guys, I probably have a simple question but I don't know where to get more information so I thought I'd just post up. So I'm pretty behind the times. Just recently got a LCD and want to enjoy some HD service via free OTA. I was looking into antennas and it seems the best option is to mount a antenna outside. So tonight a friend told me about diplexing my directv + OTA so I started looking into it but got a little confused. Maybe you fine folks can help me out.
What i'm working with
directv (jade world package) - 1 dish with 4 coax coming into house.
comcast - basic cable + internet
All this stuff comes into the basement then out to the rooms. I'd guess theres less than 100ft of coax to each room. i can watch my basic cable fine with no amplifier and directv seems to have adequate signal to operate. I should note that rooms either have directv or comcast basic cable, not both. My thought was to diplex directv + OTA.
So from my understanding can I do the following: Buy this item, HERE
. So the 4 lines from my dish + the outdoor antenna will feed into this diplexer to combine everything. The lines will come out of this and run to each of my rooms I currently have directv in. Then I need something like THIS
to re-split the signal? Do I have this logic right?
My only concern is how do I make sense of the MHZ ranges listed? Do I need to even look at that stuff?
thanks for any help in advance.
