Please forgive me if this question has already been asked, but to make it simple can you double diplex?

Here is the situation, I have the standard DVR currently and it is hooked up in this configuration at the DVR: 1 RG6 cable comes out of the wall and connects to a diplexor, 1 of the cables from it goes to the special splitter that feeds SAT 1 and SAT 2 inputs, the other cable is connected to the TV2 output. Thus in the basement on the other end of the cable that goes into the wall there is a diplexor and 1 cable goes to the SAT dish and the other goes to a TV in the basement which gets the signal from the TV2 output. Just for reference the DVR is in dual mode and the TV2 signal is modulated on channel 73.

I recently purchased an HDTV and would like to upgrade to the HD DVR, of course not all the HD stations in my area are provided by DISH. So I would get an antenna to pickup the rest, but I do not want to run another cable from the basement to where the DVR would be. So here is what I am thinking of doing, in the original configuration, adding another diplexor to the line for TV2 and then connecting the ANT to the open port on the new diplexor in the basement and then to the ANT IN on the DVR.

Does that sound like it would work? I could draw a diagram if it would make it easier to understand.

Thanks for any help.
