    Okay, I get my internet through the cable company, and in the room I have my computer I'm thinking of splicing the cable so I can have the net and a TV set up. Any idea from anyone who does this if it will affect the internet usage at all; slow things down, affect the video quality of the net?

    I'm trying to get the maximum efficiency out of wasting time. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I was always under the impression that the cable modem has no connection to the TV at all.

    Attempting to connect the cable to the TV would have little or no effect, because they're not the same type of transmission.

    It's more an issue of signal strength than anything. Use a good slice, and don't run it a couple hundred feet. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I've got mine set up the same way you're thinking about doing it, Glenn.

    I had mine set up that way and could get download speeds of around 8-900k/s. the main speed problem with cable is that you are potentially sharing the bandwidth with other people as far as I understand it.

    The way I understand it, it uses the same cable, but the tv signal and the modem signals are at different wavelengths - similar to different radio stations, so to speak

    I think *think* you should be ok signal wise as long as you dont have more than 3 'outputs' - ie 2 tvs and one modem are ok, otherwise you need some kind of a boostermajigga

    I could also be talking out my arse however... LOL

    Glenn,

    Try not to put too many splices in line and also don't use too many splitters.

    Use a 2 way splitter that is rated a minimum of 1000 mhz.

    The feed to your TV's is fed through a "notch" filter, a direct run from the main cable on the street suplies your modem.

    It should work but make sure ALL connections are wrench tight (except behind modem) and that the frayed wires do not touch the center conductor. It will fuck things up.

    Glad to help.
