Well I'm sorry, but yes they can, it is possible to do a mirror with diplexers as well with swim with no mrv
That's not a supported configuration. Why would you recommend someone setup something that's not supported???

Because the customer might be unable or unwilling to run a second coax cable.

There is no theoretical obstacle to diplexing SWM and off-air, but DirecTV has determined that it simply doesn't want to incur the responsibility of supporting such installations. There are a lot of reasons why they may have determined that they do not want to support such installations. I'm sure they don't support installations of dished attached to growing trees, nor installations with 1,000 feet of coax and line extender amplifiers and creative LNB voltage boosting techniques either, but sometimes a customer decides that is the only way or most practical way to complete their installation.
Just because something is THEORETICALLY possible does not mean we should recommend it be done. We would only be setting up this person for trouble down the road, and why do that?
