Okay ... so I caused trouble with my "splitting a single LNB " post. Let's see what trouble this causes It's going to be a REAL pain to bring the satelite cable in to my basement. I already have cable TV, and that cable is easily accessible from the side of the house. We will be keeping our cable TV for local station, so I've been looking at the possibility of using a diplexer. Has anyone here had any experience using these? If it comes down to it, I should be able to manage bringing down a new cable, but I'd rather avoid the hassle.
