I don\'t know about your specific brand, but splitters have losses that are typically 3.5,6, 7.5 and 11 for 2,3,4 and 8 way.



In most cable modem applications, we use a single 2-way so that the cable modem has only a minimum loss, then the TV\'s get put on the other side of the 2-way and split as many times as needed.



Here\'s a link to a typical splitter manufacturer where you can see the printed insertion loss of the various splitters.

Also I have not heard anything good about the HDMI spliters.

Good Luck

How to share one utp connection into two


Hi,

for 10/100 connections you can do this (look on eBay for "Lan Splitter cable"). This is because for lower rate Ethernet there are spare pairs of wires in the cable. If you intend to run 1GBps then it needs all of the pairs in the cable and you will not be able to use the splitter.

The better solution would be to either use a switch in the room to break out the one cable you already have, or to run a parallel cable. As you may need extra LAN connections in the room in the future, the switch is generally the best method.

If this helps, please leave feedback - if not let me know and 'll try and help some more

Reverse KVM problems


If you are sure the left monitor?s power is not the source of the problem it does sound like a shielding or excessive signal loss in a device/cable. If it?s always the left monitor I would try unplugging the video cable that goes from the left monitor and plug it into the right monitor; do the same with the other monitor. If the problem moves to the right monitor then that eliminates the monitors and we move on. If the problem goes away then probably one monitor had more signal degradation than the other. If the problem stays then the monitor is the source of the problem. If the problem followed the cable then I would exchange the cables that run from the switch to the monitors; if nothing changes exchange the cables that run from the switch to the PCs. If exchanging any of these cables results in the problem moving then you have a damaged cable or a bad connection. If the problem is still on the left monitor unplug the cables from the left PC that run from it to the switch and plug them into the right PC; do the same to the right PC. If the problem moves then you might have a damaged switch OR perhaps the video card output on one of the PCs is weaker than the other. All cables and devices weaken the video signal to some degree but the amounts can differ wildly. Over the years I?ve had this problem caused by cables, switchboxes, video cards, radio transmitters, bent connector pins, poor connections, excessive cable lengths, monitors and accumulative signal loss from several devices. The last is the hardest to diagnose. Good luck and let us know what happens.
