Re: [STB] MoCA interference on STB?

Please make sure you put a moca filter on your entry point as well, your neighbors will thank you. Especially with 5 of those things running.

Would I put that inside the cable company enclosure on the outside of the house? I don't usually like touching their stuff.

I know the enclosure has some kind of splitter inside it. I'd have to put the filter between the line and the splitter. Is that right? What if the enclosure isn't big enough? Is there any way to ensure that water wouldn't ruin it?

Putting the proper seals/grease on there is a good idea. You need to place it as close to the main drop as possible. There should be plenty of room to put one in there, they are not that big of a filter.

I bought a slightly different one than the one I already had. This one is advertised as being waterproof and is a little stubby and round. The other one was narrow and longer. I'll also use the rubber gasket-type things that fit on the connector.

So I put the filter on outside where the cable line comes into the house. I can't really tell any difference, but hopefully any baddies that were escaping over the last 2-3 years will now be contained.

For $8.00 you can't really go wrong.
