5 way splitter???

We currently have a 3 way splitter which manages our:

 

- family room HDTV

- spare bedroom TV

- internet connection

 

We have just finished our basement and would like to add:

 

- recreation room HDTV

- fitness room HDTV

 

Can anyone recommend a good quality 5 way splitter that can be purchased in the GTA area?

 

Thanks!

Re: 5 way splitter???

You should not use a 5-way splitter, you will cause your internet signal to degrade greatly

you should disconnect your 3-way unbalanced splitter, and put it aside, then you need to buy a 2-way splitter, put that at the main line,  one leg of the splitter goes to your modem line, the other leg of the splitter will go to a new 4-way splitter you need to buy.   then that 4-way splitter will go to all 4 STB devices and ensure proper signal strength (dB) on each drop.  if you did it te other way, you would experience difficulties.
