Here is my dilemma. I currently have dish network with american and some international channels that are not offered by time warner cable. I want to switch the american channels to time warner cable but want to keep the international channels from Dish.
Is it possible to have both dish and time warner signal travel through same cable? or do i need to lay another cable from outside of the house?
I currently have one RG6 cable carrying both Dish and Comcast cable by using two splitters. They must be good quality and the type that is direct through one in/out and one isolated in/out. There is usually a small picture on this type which shows what looks like a capacitor in the line. This connection is used for the cable.
The Dish path must be able to supply a voltage change from the receiver to select the proper bands coming from the dish/LNBFs or switches.
I'm not recommending this setup, two cables are better, but in my case it works for the bedroom TV. MY family room setup is with two cables, actually three cables as I also have two Dish receivers, along with the cable box.
The one in the family room does not have a cable box but the TV is capable of tuning the local HiFef signals via its QUAM tuner. Works great but confuses the heck out of my wife.
I was out to the Doc for an MRI yesterday at 6PM and when I came home I found that she had successfully turned on the TV and Dish receiver in the family room and had sound coming out of the Onkyo sound system. Surprised the heck out of me but then I saw that she had the Harmony 880 by her side. Wonderful, wonderful.
