I am about to wire the house. When it was remodeled, a 1" conduit was placed in the walls and runs from the basement into the attic. The idea was to use it to run data, phone, and coax wires for the rooms on the second floor. 1st floor rooms will be wired through the basement.
For phone: I am running 1 riser to the attic, and then distributing to the bedrooms (4) through a distribution block.
For Eithernet: Running individual runs (8) from the switch in the basement to the bedrooms (4).
For Coax: That is where I have questions.
Plan was to run a single riser, and then use a splitter to deliver to bedrooms.
Coax, right now, is split in the basement via 4 way splitter (-7.5 dB) to the 3 feeds on the first floor, and to the riser to the attic.
Should I get an 8 way splitter (-11 dB drop) and run individual drops to the bedrooms on the second floor and rooms on the first floor, or is it OK to proceed with the original plan to split the already split signal in the attic?
P.S. I should add that 1 of the first floor feeds goes to the Ceton InfiniTV4 directly, and the other of the feeds is additionally split 4 ways and feed 2x old style SiliconDust HomeRuns (old ones have individual ports for the tuners, vs. new one having 1 port for 4 tuners). There are no signal issues with either Ceton nor SiliconDust tuners.
TV signal is generated by the Verizon FiOS ONT on site, and coax is only used for TV. Data is fed from ONT via Eithernet to our own router.
6 TV's in the house on FiOS and we only pay $4.99/month to connect them all!!! Power to the CableCard and WMC7!!!
