    You'll need to use a 2-way splitter between the wall and the receiver & DECA.

    Okay so coax in wall to 2 way, then one cable to the receiver and then the other to the broadband deca?

    Yep, and using a smaller splitter back at the SWiM, would mean your levels wouldn't be impacted as much too.

    On the splitter when the tech was out he said that the wnc 4 way green splitter should not be used. Is this splitter an issue? I bought it from solid signal, it did not say wnc on the picture but that is what I got. Thanks.

    The tech doesn't seem to know all that much.
    If it has a green label, then it's fine. WNC is a second supplier is all.

    I went ahead and changed teh splitters back today. The first two graphics are with the 8 ways and the second two are with the 2 and 4 ways. You will note that the phy levels on node 0 went from 53 to 36 going to the 2 and 4 way splitters. It looks like the phy levels are better which is good, going from 53 to 35. As I understand anything in the 50's is bad? The mesh levels look pretty similar and seem to be fine.

    Can you tell a difference between the two and are the results with the smaller splitters better?

    One of the level photos is too blurry to see anything.
    What is important are the Mesh and not the levels "until" you have problems with Mesh.
    Your Mesh look good.

    Very good. Now that I look at it, it is blurry. The phy level on node 1 went from 53 to 42 with the change in splitters. All other phy levels show 36 on both pictures.

    So you gained almost 10 dB more "headroom".
