Question about DISH Network Televison & Video
I have a Dish TV dual tuner receiver. I have combined the satellite signal from the home distribution output and an OTA antenna signal with a diplexer. At the remote TV, I connect that cable to the TV antenna in. I can get the local stations in HD just fine. However, the satellite signal suffers too much. Even if I use a diplexer to split the signals at the remote TV, and plug in only the satellite signal, it doesn't look good. The remote TV is set to receive the satellite signal at channel 21.
You should have your system setup in the following manner below:
You also will only be able to receive the HD locals with a HD OTA antenna. It is possible that you will need to turn the satellite off in this room to view the OTA's effectively.
Also you should use a splitter as depicted in the picture by the red boxes to combine signals of this frequency. The blue box is the diplexer on the incoming satellite feed and the black box is the seperator that most dual tuners use. If yours does not utilize this device you will have another cable coming from the outside of the house to the back of the receiver. The location of the ports on the back of the receiver in my diagram may differ in position on your receiver so obviously connect them to the proper port. I hope this ressolves the issue and there is no need to seperaate the signal at the remote tv as it will only be a duplicate of the same signal you have connected already as OTA and the TV2 backfeed are of the same frequency range.
