    How to combine the 722 SD signal and the OTA signal into a single coax input.

    Old HDTV had 1 ATSC and 1 NTSC inputs: (Replacing TV) in another room.

    New HDTV has only 1 coax input: (almost all current TV's have 1 coax input)

    Need to combine the OTA signal and the channel 60 SD signal from the 722 for the new TV to recognize both signals from 1 coax input.

    Anyone had this situation when replacing new HDTV.

    Thanks JLjunk

    I use a couple of VHF-UHF amplifiers before and after my VIP722K. I thought they could provide some isolation in case of cross-talk or feedback.

    The system provides both of the VIP modulated signals and OTA to other TVs. It works very well.

    For OTA ?!?

    A good solid 1 GHz splitter/ combiner is plenty for OTA And combining TV2 output. With the digital transition complete - channel 51 tops out at 700 MHz , and if you put TV2 on some OTA channel above that, you're fine.

    If you're going to combine OTA and DBS - you're going to use diplexers, not this kind of combiner.
