Ok in my office I have a dedicated leg for my cable modem. Straight to the modem, my signal levels average around -1 to -4 db downstream with 4 channels bonded. Pushing around 51-52db upstream with 3 channels bonded.
I need to add a comcast dvr to the same room/leg. No option for another line to the room.
Using a 2 way splitter will drop downstream to around -4 to -8db and similar upstream as stated above.
Adding a 10db amp pushes downstream signal to around +4 to +6 with many many uncorrectable errors and similar upstream as above.
Using a 3 way splitter with 1 leg capped, makes downstream signals around +1 to +3db with hardly any errors, but lowers upstream to 57db and only 1 stream, instead of 3 streams.
So which option should I go with- which would be best? Speed stays consistent in all options: around 36 down, and 6 up (Blast service).
Everything using quality cabling, connectors, and splitters, mostly comcast provided. Amp used is an RCA DT100M.
