Diplexers, Triplexers, Separators, and the Winegard G2
When I was using a DISH VIP722 receiver, I was introduced to the mystical world of diplexers, triplexers, and separators . . .
Basically, all three allow you to simplify satellite TV wiring by using one cable instead of two. That’s it.
But the devil’s in the details . . .
For example, Diplexers are used in pairs: the first Diplexer combines a Satellite signal with an Over-The-Air (VHF/UHF) or a cable TV signal.
. . . a second Diplexer un-combines the VHF/UHF (or cable TV) signals.
. . . a DISH Separator is used with DISH dual-tuner receivers, like the 722.
. . . and a DISH Triplexer is just a Diplexer and a DISH Separator in one.
WHAT DOES ALL THIS HAVE TO DO WITH A WINEGARD CARRYOUT G2?
Nothing, but that’s the point.
Diplexers, Triplexers, and Separators are NOT used with a Winegard G2.
If you want to use a dual-tuner DISH receiver like a 722 with a G2, connect it like this . . .
