What MoCA frequency bands do DirecTV and Dish use: E, F, or G?
This is a seemingly simple question, but it's apparently also a massive secret! My guess would be that Dish uses band F while DirecTV uses E or G, but I can't seem to find out for sure! Does anyone know?
A Google search for "DirecTV MoCA frequency band" returns many pages but little more than very basic info. Yes, I know that MoCA added new, lower frequency bands for satellite TV use, since the original MoCA frequency bands conflicted with traditional satellite LNB frequencies. Yes, I know that poses a problem for the few of us who used to diplex satellite and OTA or cable signals. But MoCA added three different bands in the 500-850 MHz range, and it seems some limited diplexing may still be possible, depending on which band is used:
- MoCA band E goes from 500-600 MHz
- MoCA band F goes from 675-850 MHz
- MoCA band G goes from 500-800 MHz
Obviously bands E and G are completely incompatible with OTA UHF frequencies, so the only OTA diplexing possible would be with VHF. But band F would allow UHF up to roughly 575 MHz (roughly OTA channel 30 or cable channel 80). So I'd like to know which systems use which bands, just to know what's theoretically possible.
