Question:

I purchased an HS-8 to split my ATT Uverse cable from the router up for the various hardwired cable outlets, right now my cable techs have used a 4 way splitter to a 3 way splitter to cover all the outlets, I have to believe the HS-8 is more than capable of doing the job, perhaps with less degradation of output?

Answer:

It would really depend on a few factors. First and most important are the type of frequencies used with U-Verse. Our HS-8 splitter can handle up to 1000 MHz or 1 GHz. Our CVT-2/8WB can handle up to 1.5GHz however is not compatible with the most current versions of MOCA (multimedia over coax). So finding out the frequency requirements is important. The amount of insertion loss between using a 4 way and a 3 way is negligible compared to the 8 way, there is an extra 1.5dB loss using the 2 splitters instead of the single but this should not greatly affect your signal in any way. It is also important to confirm whether the existing splitters are passive or powered, if you remove the two powered splitters and replace with a passive splitter it may affect your signal strength quite a bit.
