Question to the Cox guys out there. I want to rewire the coaxial cables in my house to shorten some lines and reduce the number of splitters and splices, as I have had some signal issues that have gotten worst lately.
Right now, the service comes in at the garage, picks off the phone service and then goes to a Cox installed head amp. From there it goes back outside/underground (what they call a "double run"?) to another connection box on the other side of the house, where it splits the cable and internet. And then from there to other parts of the house to more splitters.
What I want to do is just run all new runs of cable from each TV and the modem to the head amp in the garage (called a "home run"?), and have all the splitters right there. If nothing else, this will shorten the cable runs and clean up some splices made over the years.
Is this the correct way to do it? There will be one modem, two or three converter boxes, plus a couple of TVs running just the analog signal. I was thinking of having a Cox tech do all the connections out in the garage. What would be the best splitter configuration?
