Can you connect a sky aerial and a uhf aerial together to the same wall socket?

    I only have a sky dish on the roof and want to put a UHF/VHF aerial up but
    the cabling is built into the walls and goes to 7 wall sockets around the
    house from a junction box in the roof - can I join the UHF/VHF cable to
    where the sky aerial cable goes into the junction box or will both signal
    types interfere with each other??

    cheers for any comments or advice (-:

    Yes, its called a diplexer, you put one at the roof end, and one at each
    TV to stop the satillite signal being messed up by being connected to a
    RF input.

    Clayworth on the north shore sell them, as antronic1 on trademe, so just
    ask if there are none listes - you dont want a vhf/uhf diplexer - thats
    not going to do you any good.

    Also a VHF antenna is pretty much redundant since all the stuff you get
    on it are on freeview, UHF is all you need to get freeview HD coming in.
