Cable television is a great option for homes with multiple TVs where having a set top box in every room isn't always an option. Using a cable splitter allows you to receive a cable signal on more than one television using only one signal. Splitters are also great for using a third party DVR to simultaneously record and watch two different television programs.

  2. 2

    Locate the "In" jack on the cable splitter and screw the coaxial cable from the wall jack into it, and tighten with a wrench

  3. 3

    Locate the two "out" jacks on the splitter and use the remaining two coaxial cables to screw one cable in each port, tightening with a wrench.

  4. 4

    Connect the two ends of the coaxial cable to the television sets you are trying to get a signal on.

Tips and warnings

  • Once the splitter is installed, screw the splitter to a wall or to the floor. Constantly moving the connection can degrade the quality of the signal. Make sure the connections are as tight as possible.
  • Contact your cable service provider before making any changes to your cable system.
