Hopper only and diplexer
Posted 23 September 2012 - 04:09 PM
The moron who built my house thought RG6 splitters in the wall would be a GREAT idea...
So I am using Holland DPD2's diplexers (http://www.satpro.tv/Holland-DPD2.aspx) to merge the dish and comcast signals at home entry... then splitting them again to my 722 and comcast modem.
Was thinking of upgrading to the hopper for additional tuner and updated software and storage space.
I know these diplexers will cause problems with Joeys, but we only have one main tv and do not plan to use joeys (the other uses cable basic channels and rarely used).
Does anyone know if the diplexers will have issues with just a hopper?

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ
AT200, Hopper/XiP813 via HDMI & 360 via VGA to basement 42" Westy and both via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with an Apple TV, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Review. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

EDIT: Diplexing before the node should theoretically work however it has been reported to kill MoCA. Granted if you don't need MoCA then it may not be an issue. However diplexing before the node would still be pointless as you would need two lines ran to the room defeating the purpose of diplexing.
