Would I have ANY problem with combining my DIRECTV 101 satellite signal, my 72.5 local satellite signal & Roadrunner onto 1 RG6 cable then splitting it off to the appropriate locations once inside my house????

What would any of you reccomend???

Split is the wrong term diplex would be better.

I diplexed Road Runner and D* once. While I was there everything worked, I never caught a service call or charge back for that install. I've been told it's not good to run them both together but I don't really know. I always run a seperate line an leave the RR alone.

If you want to try you need two good diplexers. Install one after the switch and the other wherever you need to seperate the signals.
