These small filters may be placed on a splitter that feeds cable tv through your house. They do NOT block out any channels or limit your cable modem speed. These are "High Pass" filters that need to be on there to filter out noise on the "Non Digital" lines going to Analog tv feeds. Do NOT remove them as they cut down on noise feeding back into the CATV system.
EinBit (inactive member) adds that the filter will block Internet access if attached to the cable feeding the modem. The filter stops ingress noise, egress noise, and two-way throughput; however, two-way throughput is needed for the modem to work.
drifter adds: "[W]hen I received my new DVR last month the Insight tech removed my filter. He stated that they were causing more problems than they were worth, and that they were removing all filters. I am located in Decatur, IL."
