    Look for the Monster 2 GigaHertz RF splitter.
    The 4-way lists at $29.95.
    The construction on these 2 Gig splitters is good and the insertion loss truly (IME) is minimal.
    If you can't find the 2 Gig splitter in the stores, audioadvisor.com has them.

    Good Luck,
    BOK

    What is the db loss on the Monster Cable 4-way splitter?
    If you have a "standard issue" 3-way splitter in your system now you are probably dropping 4db on 1 leg and 8db on the other 2 legs. A "standard issue" 4-way will drop 8db on all 4 legs. If everything looks good to you now, just go to your cable provider and ask them if they will provide you with a 4-way splitter. They hand them out here for free, but they might charge you a few bucks where you live. I don't believe I'd spend 29.95 on a 4-way splitter.
    It's a shame you don't live close to me, I probably have 100 4-ways in the back of my truck [​IMG]

    OK, I have a "standard issue" 4-way in hand. Bandwidth is 5-1000MHz... 1/2 the bandwidth of the Monster 4-way. I don't think this would present a problem in the digital realm though, as the "standard issue" 4-ways pass digital cable and high-speed data with no problems.
