| tap vs. splitter|
|I want to run cable from my house to an outbuilding approx 300 feet away with 3 outlets. From my incomung cable, there is a tap to my cable modem, then a splitter to 4 rooms in the house. Can I use a 2-way splitter between the tap and the 4-way splitter, or do I need another tap. If so, what value? Thanks. |

It looks like you may want to use a (not too powerful) amplifier after the first splitter on the longer cable run. I think you may use a 2-way splitter after the cable modem tap to divide the signal into local and remote. Don't see why not.
Check out Smarthome's Website (click here) they have a nice selection of inexpensive CATV parts and provide tech support when (even before) you buy from them
