I currently have xfinity gigabit internet and phone service, looking to add X1 tv service. Between the ground block cable and the coax entering the house there is a POE filter with a sticker that says Do Not Remove, needed for DVR service. My 2 questions are (1) if I add a Commscope amplifier/splitter outside, to split the incoming signal between internet/phone and tv, does the new amplifier/splitter need to have a MoCA filter (model CSMAPDU9VP), or is the non-MoCA model (CSAPDU9VP) sufficient because there is already a POE filter outside? and (2) if I get the MoCA model, do I still keep the current POE filter attached outside?
Thank you. If I add the amplifier/splitter that has the MoCA filter, will it interfere at all with the POE filter that is already there? In other words, even if I don't need another filter, will it cause any issues if I use the MoCA amplifier along with the existing POE filter?
the voip is also for your gateway so a power failure will not remove power from your gateway/modem (so it will work if you have it on a battery or UPS).
I understand that the modem gateway would typically plug into the voip output on the splitter, but if I get a wireless x1 tv box, does the internet/phone modem then have to be plugged into one of the non-voip outputs?
The MoCA will indeed 'leak' to that port.
Moca will not “leak” to the voip port, and the voip port has a 6db loss in cable signal while the others have none. The voip port is basically an internal two way splitter
A few years ago, I called and talked to a commscope engineer re: MoCA splitters when a question came up about which 'end' to use for the longest runs. The engineer confirmed all but the power-only coax connector (9 ports) get the moca leakage, the group of coax connectors on the 'input' end have stronger MoCA leakage and work better for the longer 150-250 feet runs. that 'end' of the amplifier is connected to the 2nd board inside the unit and that is why the leakage signal is a bit weaker on the far end of the unity amplifier from the cable in connector.
