    Not to knocking you -Suggest doing away with 4 & 2 way and just get one 8 way (also) put a terminator on the PI (ird) out as well

    Or Just take out the 2 way and connect direct to c41 pictured (and lose the 2 way) as long as it works your golden -Do noting and your fine.

    I normally argue for as small a splitter as you can get away with. I would suggest using the output port of the PI to feed your third C41 and drop the 2-way splitter. Don't change the 4-way out.

    However, all of the suggestions will work just fine, and always remember: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

    Isn't anyone going to tell the OP to trade in all those clients for HR24s? :smilingimp:

    There you go! Usually something simple. PIs don't seem complicated to use, had to be something simple.
