    I have just decided to give comcast another chance (special deal) and I have a simple? question. I will be doing a self install.

    The cable comes out of the wall and goes to my personal modem.

    Do I spit the cable BEFORE the modem (then one cable to modem and another to Tivo)?

    or

    Is there another way?

    Thanks (I know, silly simple question but I want to know for sure) Beforwe I try

    Some where...
    Yes that is the way to do it. Be sure to use a 5gz to 1000 gz splitter.

    Not sure about comcast but time warner will provide approved splitters, and amplified splitters when needed, for no additional charge.

    Get a splitter approved by comcast to ensure everyone plays nice.

    I have a 5 - 2300 mhz; is that sufficient?

    That should be OK. You don't want to use one that has less than 1000 mhz bandwidth.
