I've recently purchased HD digital cable through verizon FOIS. I currently have coax cable jacks in 6 locations through out the house (4 bedrooms, family room & basement rec room). I also have a HD media DVR (supplied by verizon) which will allow me to record TV programs and watch them in other rooms in the house. I'm noticing a weak signal/ picture in 1 room that is the furthest location from the modem & DVR. Verizon tech and my own research has led me to believe the signal is weak due to too many 3-way and 2-way splitters. Verizon tech recommended to wire each room as a "home run" to minimize splitters and signal loss. They tried connecting an amplifier to boost signal, but it didn't help much. They recommended removing splitters and connecting as home runs. I've seen many 2-way and 3-way splitters on the market but don't know much about splitters that are 4 or more to allow me to connect all rooms as a "home run". Can anyone provide me with some guidance as to what good 6 way splitters are out there and if they will meet verizon fois requirements.
