Re: [Connectivity] Do I need to get an amplifer and active retur

If you use the two 2-way splitters you are introducing an extra component that may/may not have an impact-the jumper to interconnect them.

You could just use the 3-way splitter and eliminate the jumper all together as you mentioned. An unbalanced 3-way will have one port w/3.5db loss and two with 7db loss. Same as using the two 2-ways.

Hook the modem to the 3.5db port and the TV/PC tuner to the 7db ports.
