Will attaching a signal splitter (Y - plug) to a video signal decrease signal quality appreciably?
Yes it can, how much it degrades the signal depends on the quality of the splitter.
You are not allowed to "Y" split a baseband video signal. This is an impedance matched connection. If you simply split it, the 75 ohm video source will see half the impedance as its load. You won't like the results.
You need a proper video distribution device (one in / two out, etc) to accomplish this.... That way the source component sees its required 75 ohm load for a proper match..
