I can buy a Eagle Aspen Single Port Power Passive Diplexer for $5 on the web or buy a Terk Single Indoor/Outdoor Diplexer for DIRECTV at a local B&M store for $20.


In general, aren't diplexers mostly the same? I mean, why should I pay the $20 for the Terk? What diplexer (if any) do you have and can you reccomend it?

The cheap ones work just as well or just as badly depending on your system as they all cause loss of signal strength.;)


An occasional example will fail but there doesn't seem to be much of a correlation between price and failure.

You should be aware that the diplexer should pass the power for the LNB. Not many of the cheapies do that. I have used the channel master diplexers which have a model for use with satellite systems that have a sharper filter cutoff. They are all pretty cheap so you can buy good ones easily.

:confused: They all do it. They wouldn't work at all otherwise. Most don't pass it on the antenna side but that's normally a good thing. It's a rare installation that can handle that.

They all work well!
I plan on putting the diplexer on the bottom end of my install (right before the SAT-HD200) to get antenna and sat feeds into it.


Which diplexer do you reccommend? Would the Eagle Aspen Single Port Power Passive Diplexer (D-2100LX) work?
