Re: [HD] FIOS Install has 3 Way Splitter 2 3.x dB and 1 6.x dB.

Verizon does get balanced 3-way splitters occasionally all with 6 or 5.5 db loss.

If the 3 way splitter is the only splitter, then replacing it with a 4-way splitter with 7.5 db loss on each leg is fine.

If there are other splitters in the equation list them, and I`m sure a solution will be spelled out for you.

Pretty obvious he doesnt have a balanced splitter. Use the low loss leg thats going to be between 3 and 4. The way a unbalanced three way splitter works is your signal is split once within the splitter with half the signal going to the one leg. Than its split again and sent to the two remaining legs. If you put a second 2 way splitter on the low loss leg you come out with all 4 with a loss of about 7 dbs each. Or you just get a 4 way splitter which just splits the signal 4 equal ways with the same 7 db loss roughly.

After taking another look, It is a 1 output 3.7 dB and 2 output 6.7 dB.

Had cablle card reactivated, and all looks good, even with white barrel connector, but will search for a better one.

Thinking of changing the 3.7 and 6.7 so that one HD TV gets a 6.7 and the BEDROOM the splits gets, the 3.7 feed, to further SPLIT.

Thanks, For help... PICTURE and sound look great, will test to see if all channels paid for are there.

it shouldn't matter as long as your signal is fine. I have an 8 way splitter on the output of my ONT. I can split one of those 8 outputs and then have it split four ways in my TiVo Elite and it still has a very strong signal.
