I'm not a cable tech. But, I do have some experience in my home and three others with adding splitters, running coax, terminating coax, etc. to 6+ drops without an amp(s).
Some of the longest runs are/were ~100'. Assuming an optimal signal on the incoming cable feed (which may differ in some areas/providers) it can work well. As it pertains to two of the homes, they converted to FiOS without any changes.
I can appreciate that the "cable guys" are also trying to help and provide recommendations based on their experiences/expertise. But, it gets annoying when one is told they are "wrong/incorrect".
Either way... hopefully the OP finds a simple/inexpensive solution.
