the zero gain commscope is usually used.are you going to use that many outlets?you will need a POE groundblock filter/reflector at the demarcation point.

if you have a roku device you can use that on some of the TVs. the commscope is a MoCA enabled unity (0 gain) splitter with a non-amplified port for the gateway so if power is lost the internet will still work if the gateway is on a UPS or has a battery.
