The Advantages of Satellite Television
     In most instances, a side-by-side comparison of satellite television and cable delivered television is quite noticeable.  Both services may have the ability to deliver crystal-clear digital pictures and cd-quality sound, but do they?  What is the difference?
     For the most part, the difference in quality equates to distance.  In particular, the distance from the source (satellite dish) to the point of delivery (your television set).  The cable television dish may be located 25 miles from your home and the signal is constantly being degraded as it travels down-line through signal amps, electrical power inserters, and possible cable splices.  NOW, compare that scenario with a satellite dish mounted 75 to 100 feet from your television set.
TRADITIONAL USE OF SATELLITE DIPLEXERS

The ONE Disadvantage of Satellite Television
     Satellite programming may not offer local network or independent TV channels in your particular area.  Fact of the matter, there is a large portion of rural America that is not covered.  The solution is actually quite simple: capture those signals with either an off-air (uhf/vhf) antenna or cable TV feed and add them to your channel line-up.

The Satellite Diplexer: A Seamless Solution!
    
You can run two drops: one drop from your satellite dish and the other drop from your local channel source OR you can use two signal diplexers and run both signals down ONE coaxial cable drop SIMULTANEOUSLY.  One diplexer is used outside to combine the two separate signals (one signal from the satellite dish and another signal from either an off-air TV antenna or cable TV feed).   A second diplexer is used inside to separate the combined signals before they enter your satellite receiver.  Satellite diplexers eliminate the need for extra wiring thereby reducing the cost of labor and installation materials necessary to run two coaxial drops.

WHAT IS BACKFEEDING IN RELATION TO SATELLITE DIPLEXERS?
You'd like to mirror a second TV in another part of your home with your existing satellite receiver but your home is pre-wired and there's only one coaxial cable!  NO SWEAT!  Use this diagram to get the satellite signal from the satellite dish outside to your satellite receiver inside -- then, FEED BACK THROUGH THE SAME CABLE to power a second, third, or fourth television set in another part of your home.

THE SATELLITE DIPLEXER

 
Satellite Diplexer EDIP-1
  A satellite diplexer is used outside to combine two separate signals: one signal from the satellite dish and another signal from either an off-air TV antenna or cable TV feed into a single coaxial cable.  A second diplexer is used inside behind the satellite receiver to separate the combined signals.  Satellite diplexers eliminate the need for extra wiring thereby reducing the cost of labor and installation materials necessary to run two coaxial drops.   

Combining Satellite Diplexers with MultiSwitches

 

3x4 Multi-Switch A satellite multi-switch can be used outside to combine the signals from the satellite dish with signals from either an off-air TV antenna or cable TV feed in conjunction with a satellite diplexer inside to separate those signals before they enter the satellite receiver.

RF Signal Splitter FREQUENCY RANGE: 5 - 1000 MHz.  DC ~ SIGNAL ONLY.  NON-POWER PASSIVE.  RF signal splitters are used primarily to add additional outlets to your existing cable TV service or split the output of your satellite receiver to more than one television.  Two, Three, Four, and eight way RF signal splitters are available at this site.


COAXIAL JUMPERS

 

coax jumper You'll need coax jumpers to Insert multiswitches, diplexers and splitters.  You can make your own or you can purchase them pre-made.  Use these professionally molded coaxial jumpers with confidence.
  • Use RG59 jumpers to connect RF output: Satellite Receiver to TV or VCR; VCR to TV; Satellite Meters to LNB's; Any Test Equipment with F-Connectors.
  • Use Heavier Gauge RG6 Coaxial Jumpers to connect diplexers, in-line amps, switches, and other electronic components between the satellite dish antenna and the satellite receiver.
