So, I'm out of portals but have one more TV in the basement. If I put a 2way splitter there and run one side to a portal and the other to a DCT700. Do I need a MoCA filter installed before my old DCT700?

While I'm asking, my main TV has pic-in-pic. So I run HDMI from a portal to the tv but I also want to run a cable to the tv tuner so that the pic-in-pic works. Once again, do I need a MoCA filter before the tv? Or should I run a separate cable from BEFORE the Gateway MoCA wall to the tv itself?

Welcome to the forum. I can answer your second question.

If your main TV needs the coax cable as one of the inputs to pic-in-pic, it probably won't work. Shaw discontinued analog signals in most cities and everything is all digital and encrypted.
See: http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/36-...nalogue-digital-migration-32.html#post2678570

You can make it work by getting another Shaw box for the second input and connecting the coax output of the Shaw box to the coax input of your TV. You would tune your TV to channel 3 or 4 (whatever your Shaw box has for the output) and use your second Shaw remote to change channels for the second box.) The picture won't be HD, which won't be a problem unless you zoom it to full screen.

I don't know the answer to your MoCA questions, but I'm sure the issue has been addressed in this sub-forum.
