My modem would need to be by my TV to utilize the networking of DirecTV. Therefore, I'd like to run the cable feed down my antenna wire if possible. Then split/diplex once inside for the TV and modem.
I know this isn't the proper location for this post, but I live here and you guys are smart and may know the answer to this question.
Some time back when I had Charter, I tried back-feeding and combining my cable with the antenna. What a mess. The channels that didn't conflict has a pulsating type hertz bar that I think was caused by the cable broadband. I got rid of Charter and have been very happy ever since.
I hope there are some experts here that can better help you. With the right stuff, it could work.
I use Dish Network and have no problem back-feeding or combining as long as channels don't conflict.
