Since this has more to do with computers, I'll put it in this section, but if this is incorrect, please feel free to move it. The room where my X-Box is is detached from my house, in a separate game room with my big screen. Currently, I don't have cable run to this room, but the cable company is coming out in a couple of weeks (apparently they are busy) to run me a line out there. While on the phone, I asked her if I'd be able to rent another cable modem (I'm currently renting the one I'm using now from the cable company), and she said that I couldn't, that I'd only be able to network. That's not possible for several reasons. I want to hook the X-Box up to Live when it launches in November, but I don't want to have to sacrifice 5.1 and Progressive scan to do it. If I were to buy my own cable modem and use a splitter for this new line, would that work? I didn't understand if she meant that the cable company only rented one modem per house, or if only one modem per house would work without networking? All answers are appreciated.
