Dish and Comcast Internet on same Coaxial Cable
Posted 07 October 2012 - 12:56 PM
The Disk Network technician tried this same hook up using 2 Holland 5/2150 HFS-2D splitters and it does not work. The satellite signal comes through fine, but the cable internet will not work. When I connect it with using the old splitters that worked when I had Directv, which is an Aska 5-2150 Diplexer on the combining end and a Holland DPD2 5-2150 on the splitter end, the Comcast internet signal comes through fine, but the satellite does not work.
I would really like to run the satellite and cable internet through the same coaxial cable. Do I need a special signal combiner/splitter?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
If this is not the proper forum for this post, please let me know.

#2 - You have to use Diplexers in PAIRS. However - I don't know what frequencies the Joey is using, so again - go back to separate cables. They may very well be using the same band. If you didn't have the Hopper / Joey setup - then your old DirecTV setup using the diplexers would have worked.
#3 - There maybe some other network technology (ethernet, wifi ?) to connect your Joey to the Hopper, and leave the coax cable for the cable modem..

"Belligerent and numerous."
Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ
AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.
