I just finished installing a dual LNB on my 2000 Alpine manual satellite dish. I was planning to use the two coaxes that are already there by placing a dual diplexer and combing two satellite feeds with the off-air antenna. The satellite feed I have connected to the old off-air coax will not work. I have a suspicion that the RG-59 connected to the off-air does not make a direct home run to the amplifier but connects to the catv jack in the utility bay.

I plan to call Max at WRV on Monday. I the mean time I was wondering if anyone has tried this before?

On my Direct TV at home both LNB cables go into my receiver.

Danny,

I recall on my 04 that all "inputs" (OA Ant, Cable, etc.) go first to my WInegard switch and then can be routed to the BR or utility bay.

If you're wired like mine, have you tried switching the ANT to Main?
