You can use a dedicated joiner/combiner, but most people use a 2-way splitter in reverse, and it works fine. Then after that point, use a 2 -way splitter to split to tv's in your house.
However, if I were you, I would try to get only 1 HBU33 for now, and see if you can indeed get the LA stations. Otherwise you are going to have to return it. I'm just trying to save you inconvenience. In all likelyhood you probably can get the LA stations. But in the event you can't, then you can use it for the Texas stations. Instead of ordering, does a local radio Shack havee it in stock for pick-up?
Keep in mind you still might need an amp, especially for the LA stations. I would just hook up the antenna to 1 tv, then go from there. If you get channels fine, then hook up combiner and splitter, and if you see stations starting to drop out, then you need an amp.
