I'm moving into an old 1908 house that the previous owner recently rewired with a single RG-6 Coax to each room. It looks like its some sort of strange combo topography where they have used splitters in the walls to hit 8 locations, but I only see 4 cables terminating in the attic. As far as I can tell, the previous owner did NOT have Directv or Dish. Since its all the same branded RG6 cable in the 8 locations, I can only assume that they combined some of the rooms with splitters. I'm still in the process of tracing the signals to understand which attic cable leads to which rooms. I'm thinking SWM is my best option, but I have no idea what kind of splitters are in the wall. If they installed these splitters 2 years ago, what are the odds that they will work with SWM ( 2-2150 MHz)?

Probably not very good.

For standard cable and OTA you do not need high frequency splitters and HF splitters are quite a bit more than normal ones as well, not to mention harder to come by.
Ugggh. I was afraid you'd say that. What is the easiest way to test frequency responses?

Odds are you have standard cable splitters somewhere. Most likely 40-950, or if your "lucky" 5-1000mhz. Time to play where's Waldo with the splitters.
