There's an internal 2-way splitter, so connecting it backwards increases loss.


Yes, but it should still work just fine though, correct (with the exception of the increased loss)?

Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.

"Generally", but a CCK connected to a backward [non green] 2-way splitter has caused troubles before.

Isn't that the operative word though?

Maybe not the way you think though.
It didn't cause a problem with the receiver nearest the CCK, and the receiver had no SWiM problems.
It did cause another receiver off the main splitter to have DECA problems.

Aahhh...

But, if the OP in this case has all green label splitters it shouldn't cause any additional issues.
