Is it possible to have an installer run the Sat signal over the same line as Cable? Reason...I have a Tivo that I use for viewing movies stored on an External Hard Drive that is connected to my computer. All done wirelessly. If I can keep Cabletv...at lifeline cable (bare minnimum) It'll make it easier to justify keeping the Tivo hooked up. Or, is it possible to stream movies to the HD DVR Directv offers?
"Yes & No".
No, they can't share the coax. The streaming ability on DirecTV is very poor for the most part. If you can, then look into a streaming box like WD Live or even a Blu Ray player that has streaming capabilities.
While not supported, and not always possible, in some cases they can share the same coax. If you're on a SWiM DirecTV setup, CATV can be diplexed in, but you also lose the ability to use the DirecTV coax networking.
