Diplexer which supports 750 mA?

Power inserters are used for the SW64 & DPP44 switches, and for OTA pre-amps.
If a switch is involved, it can get a touch sticky, but E* has a high-current diplexer designed for use with the DPP44, and they should work with the old SW64, too.
If you're runing DishPro, OTA pre-amps can SOMETIMES work with just the power provided by the receiver or a switch power inserter. A diplexer that passes power on both legs is used for that case. Make sure the pre-amp is rated for the 18-20VDC used by E* boxes. I limit this solution to DP because Legacy gear is voltage switched, and the pre-amp might not like that.
Trying to use the OTA pre-amp's power supply on the same cable as the satellite signal can get REAL sticky. Hopefully the pre-amp likes 18-20VDC, and it's power inserter passes RF up to at least 2150MHz. If the voltage is OK, but the inserter is not, an E* power inserter might be the answer.

DP-Twin=110/119, DP Single=148, into a DP34, DP Dual=61.5, into DP21s to add 61.5

Splitters, diplexers, and separators are all DIFFERENT devices that perform DIFFERENT functions.

Do it right, or don't do it at all.

And there's NO sense in it - a high-current diplexer costs less than a DP Splitter.

I think I got them for about $2 a piece on ebay...
