Next week, i'm going to go to a friend's house and install a new cable TV outlet. I want to know of a good splitter to use. What brand and what specs?

5 - 1000mHz would be the specs. I use BFI but then again almost any will work for you.

I have found Antronix splitters in the store by my house, would these work?

It says 5-1000 MHZ

You could try the local Shaw retail location first, we give out free BGI splitters to our customers at our office.

Wow, what a deal. Good to know.

I can see the logic though, at least you get to control the quality of splitters used. Great idea, well done Shaw.

I am getting more and more confused.

Do you have Shaw Cable or Bell TV.?

OK, thanks for that.

For your Cable splitter head for a Shaw Office, get a freebie.

For Bell TV, you CANNOT use a Splitter.

PCT make fantastic quality drop passives!!

I'm a huge fan of PCT passives...

They make great quality stuff with under 3db performance!

If your purchasing in a Canadian retail store it would be wise to purchase one rated to 2.5Ghz etc and don't get one with the gold plating BS...

It's not that you need to higher rated frequency... it's simply that to the Chinese ODM/OEM this means it's a higher quality part with copper internals for conductor and not CHEAP ALUMINUM!!!
