Does anyone know what frequency the diplexers operate at?

I tried looking for it but didn't see any mention of it anywhere. I know that typically most cable systems are using the entire frequency range from about 30hz to 1ghz these days.

I believe diplexors are ~15-2500mhz.

I just installed this, and works great.

Only problem, is that I get a bad picture on my cable when the S50 is on.
Do I need to get a in line amp for the line?

I think it is due to the line being split before coming to the second diplexor.

In the room this is installed the line comes from attic after merging the cable and sat line, then goes down the wall, then the cable splits one into one bedroom the other into the living room, then the cable line goes into the 2nd diplexor to be split to the TV and S50.

So would an inline amp in the attic after the 1st diplexor work?

I tried using a Satellite In-Line Amplifier due to its cost, but i tihnk the frequency range wasn't low enough (950-2050mhz).

Wold something like In-Line Signal Amplifier with a powered source work?

I used the Cable Distribution for some time now, but I recently switched to Dish Network, so my kit no longer works. I know there is a DBS distribution kit, but I don't need the antenna or SMB-> F connector adapter, so does anyone know what kind of diplexers (frequency range) I need to get my sirius antenna to work with my satellite dish. I'm hoping just to go into radio shack or something to pick up a couple of diplexers.

Can this be used with more than one Sirius radio? In other words, can I put a diplexer on the cable in my bedroom and hook it up to my radio, and put another diplexer on the cable in the living room and hook up to a radio there? And use both to get satellite reception? Or does it only work one diplexer/radio.
