Thanks, so any number below 60 doesn't really matter as long as it is below 60. The only reason I am waiting to check the connection is that the amplifier should be in any day now and that way I will have everything that I need to do the job. I still like your idea of going down to a green 4 way SWM splitter and replacing the current 2 way splitter with a green 2 way SWM splitter. I am hoping that I do have the 2 way splitter connected backwards or otherwise it may be back to the starting block. Would it be better to run another coax from the DECA all the way back to the splitter or does it matter regarding the DECA signal strength? Additionally, if I do this would I need to run the DECA line to the red colored output or does it matter? I currently have the red colored output open with nothing connected to it including a termination cap. If I stick with the green 8 way splitter and the two way splitter should I connect the DECA to that port from the HR24 or does it matter. Thanks.
