Splitting a FIOS tv signal

Message 1 of 2

I read a few old posts from 2009 about splitting my tv signal.  Verizon installed a new connection for me a year ago.  I wasn't happy with how the installer did the new cable.  Since then I had to repair the plaster wall and put in an electrical box for the wiring which wasn't done orginally by the installer.  I want to split this wire to make a new tv connection in the room on the other side of the wall.

 

From what I read I need a splitter that ranges from 5-1000 Mhz and is bi directional like a  PDI Mega Splitter which I hear is what Verizon uses.  Is there anything else I need to know other than using RG6 coax comming off of the splitter?

That should work.  Splitters always induce a slight signal loss.  But if everything is fine now, adding one splitter shouldn't cause a problem.
