I have just had Fios installed and my ideal media closet is going to be the following:

Cable Box (HDDVR) - CHS 435HDC >
Cable Box (HD) > 3 Way splitter < Verizon Coax
Cable Modem - MI424WR >

Currently, my setup on VZ's supplied splitter is (does not work). Internet and the majority of cable works fine (channels such of ESPN, DIscovery, ESPN2 and others get distorted and lose audio)

Cable Box (HDDVR) - CHS 435HDC > 3.5dB
Empty > 7.5dB 3 Way splitter < Verizon Coax
Cable Modem - MI424WR > 7.5dB

Also, I have tried moving around these 2 connections to the 3.5 db and 7.5dB slots with no success.

This setup does work for me using VZ's splitter (channels above work perfectly), but the second i try to connect the cable modem's coax I lose them:

Cable Box (HDDVR) - CHS 435HDC > 3.5dB
Empty > 7.5dB 3 Way splitter < Verizon Coax
Empty > 7.5dB

Any idea what I should look for when purchasing a splitter to solve this issue?

Since it's a "new" FiOS install, why not have Verizon come back out to diagnose and properly install their equipment to resolve the "problem to your desires/specifications?
