I have 4 RG6 cables coming in from my triple LNB dish to a multiswitch, which then goes out to 8 connections to various Directv equipment in the house.

Can I take just one of the inputs from the dish to the multiswitch and diplex it with the OTA, and then have OTA available at all 8 jacks in the house (assuming I split it back apart with another diplexer at each receiver?

Right now I have the antenna diplexed with just one of the outputs from the multiswitch and only one of my receivers is able to get OTA. :(

TIA

That will not work. You will need to upgrade to a 5x8 multiswitch or diplex in the OTA signal to each line seperatly.

Keep in mind that diplexing won't work with the HR20, so for future proofing you might just want to run a separate coax cable to each spot you'll want to receive the OTA signal.
