Do you have two outside connections? (cable & satellite)
If you have only one outside connection marked cable it may or may not work.
For sure you are going to want the the power to the amp off like described above but if there are any splitters in the line that feed another location then no, you will need to run a separate cable from the dish. Sat boxes pass voltage between the receiver and the dish via the cable and do not work with common cable splitters.
