    I knew it was low, I just didnt take the time to go out to the garage to look.

    My setup seems to be working fine, I do have Green Label splitter at all of my receivers, but the 4 way in the garage is not a green label. How much of a performance increase would I See by switching to the Green Label?

    The non green has about 23-25 dB of loss between outputs. A 4-way green labeled has about 11 dB loss.
    This may or may not make a big difference because DECA doesn't "work better" with a stronger signal, but it does work "poorly" with a weak signal.

    "Basically" it sounds like you have green ones where it doesn't matter, and not where they do.

    Thanks all,

    I do have one HR20-100 in the mix and am aware of it's "specialness". I'll take a look at my 4-way splitter and see if it has a power pass port. If not I'll order a Green Label 4-way and try it again.

    What a great forum Dbstalk is!

    Didn't realize it before, but they are available at Newegg.
