This Category and Sub-Categories are comprised of Passives for use between the Dish and Your Receiver(s) that make the Whole System come together. When you add a Second source of Signal to Feed Thru your System (Off-Air TV, Cable TV, Broadband Internet), These Components now become a Necessity! With the Right Selection of Parts, You can Select, Mix and Distribute almost Any Combination of Wide-band Signals where you need them, then Separate and Provide the Inputs necessary for the Appropriate End-Use Equipment. Please do not Forget to account for Signal Gains and Losses throughout the System of Distribution of Signals Starting with the Signal Origin (LNB) and Terminating at the Receivers. The Starting Signal Level and Amplifier Gains should Equal the Line (Drop) and Passive Losses in addition to the proper Signal Levels above Receiver Input Threshold to Optimize Signal to Noise Ratios, Picture Quality and Performance.
When Splitting the High Frequencies of Satellite TV Services to feed multiple Receivers, the Loss associated with the splitter may need to be compensated for with the use of an In-Line Satellite Drop Amplifier specific to this purpose and Frequency Range. Consider the need and review the "Satellite TV Amplifier" category for selection.
Also the issue of supplying Voltage back to the LNB(F) may be addressed more resolutely with the installation of a Power Supply and Power Inserter specific to the purpose. Consider the need and review the "DC Power Inserter" category for selection.
Most Signal Diplexer Example Use Scenarios require two (2) of these devices to properly Mix and then Un-Mix the signal feeds to the Appropriate Devices in question.
Commensurate with Satellite TV Antenna and Splitter Installation, you want to Ground your Coaxial Cable System Outside before bringing the RG-6 Cable Inside. This way, Lightning Strikes and Power Surges have an opportunity to arrest before reaching your TV and Entertainment Electronics. The Integral Grounding Block designed onto most Outdoor Use Compatible RF Signal Splitter we sell will effectively convey this unwanted Electrical Energy to a Ground Rod via a Copper Ground Wire that you Install (not included). Also Available are Dual F Port Grounding Blocks specific for this purpose and Frequency carriage. Consult your Local Building Code and NEC for guidance to Properly Grounding your HD TV Antenna, Satellite TV, Cable TV, WI-FI, Wireless Internet, Business Band, CB or Amateur Radio Antenna Installation.
