I have an older home that has only a single rg6 run from the dish to the entertainment room. I have a newer DirecTV dish in place and would like to move to HD. Can I do it?


Thanks

You use two diplexers (not a regular splitter) one by the antenna and one inside by the receiver. Radio Shack has an RCA diplexer for about $24 each, but other stores like Frys carry them for half-that.

Unless your satellite recevier is a dual tuner, one line of rg6 is enough. An external antenna signal can be diplexed on that line to get you OTA for HD locals.
No OTA available in my area. I basically want both regular DTV progamming and the HD package. Still possible with the single run?

DTV means digital television around here. All channels including HD are available on a single HD receiver with a 3LNB dish and a single connection cable.
