    While debugging a professionally installed system's OTA problem I noticed that the power inserter going to the DPP44 is installed after the diplexer, e.g.

    Dishes -> DPP44 -> Diplexer (add OTA) -> Inserter -> Receiver

    This seems at odds with the instructions.

    It's been working almost a year.

    Did I misunderstand? Should it not be:

    Dishes -> DPP44 -> Inserter -> Diplexer (add OTA) -> Receiver

    Should I change? How can it be working?

    I can call the installers, but I wanted a sanity check. Actually it's a 2 minute change, I can also just change it, but want to make sure I know what "right" is.

    PS. The problem I was having is they used a TERK antenna, and it just is a piece of crap.

    I have to think that putting the power inserter after the diplexor is going to cause some problems. I say put it in the correct position. Even if it doesn't fix your OTA problems you've eliminated one possible source.

    Why would you think that it would cause problem? A diplexer it made to pass voltage on the satellite side. There should be no problem unless it is a real cheap diplexer.
