Right now my setup includes 1 VIP622 with 2 dishes up on the roof pointing in different directions. I want to hook up an OTA antenna on my roof. Is there any way I can combine the signal of the OTA antenna onto the cable that runs into my house and then split it off again at the reciever so I don't have to run anymore cable through my walls?

Thanks,

Do a search on diplexing.

It is done, but if any of your OTA signals are weak, you will probably lose them as diplexing has inherent signal loss and marginal stations become to weak to be decoded.
