    Here is a quick setup if you are needing internet on your ps3 / xbox or even your TV set. I havent had any problems with this setup. no lag on gaming or video chatting. and MRV still works.

    Used to be a Directv Service Tech. MRV Connected Home Certified.

    Edit: you must have internet going to your swim system for this to work.

    I wondered if that would work, but never got around to trying it. Glad to see someone did. Thanks for the info.

    It's all TCP/IP so yeah, "it'll work." Just don't expect D* to support your playstation :lol:

    It's also a cheap way to network for those without D*. A broadband DECA at either end of a coax works well for rooms with no ethernet connectivity (but an available coax.) MUCH cheaper than most other solutions.

    And in this case it introduces an extra 2-way split after an 8-way, which is not recommended.

    It's true that the 2-way will add extra db loss, but there's nothing "not recommended" about adding a 2-way after an 8-way. After all, an HR20-100 needs a 2-way "behind" it to power a Deca. If the option is to cascade off an 8-way then so be it...

    adding the second splitter does not cause a problem. it will give you a lil db loss. but not enough to cause an issue.
