I see you're mixing a reason and a case: a problem will happen if there is signals at same freq, not diplexing itself.
The point of questioning is : if there any OTA signal in his area what fall into MoCA range ?

Actually no, the problem is diplexing itself. The way a diplexer functions is to block all incoming sub 950 MHz signals on the Sat port so that it can insert the 0-890 MHz signals from the UHF port without interference. So any MoCA signals on the SAT line are blocked, even if nothing is connected to the UHF port. And yes, I know some will leak through, but it will severely limit the MoCA signal strength.

Bingo. But yes (of course) sharing the same frequencies won't work either.

Also, even though theoretically diplexing before the node should work, it has been reported to also kill the MoCA signal.
