its the same as a 2way to a 4 way...just all in one piece.....somewhat of a myth.
2 way and 4 way.
and dont buy the gold junk.
more to gar point it should have printed on it [either in ink or stamped] a frequency rating of 5Mhz to 1Ghz however they choose to write it some say 1002Mhz, close enough. And the loss per leg which is usually stamped in the metal. You do not want a hybrid cable/sat splitter, their loss per leg is higher due to covering different frequencies. You probably don't want most of what they sell in lowes/homedepot/walmart/radioshack, instead go to the comcast office, if its close by, and just ask for a 2 way they should have no problem handing you one.
