Hitting clear will clear the message, but the error will eventually return either the same day or maybe in a couple of days. Typically it returns when a potential super bowl game winning pass is in the air. Guess I will contact Comcast.
Instead of leaving the second output port on the splitter unterminated, you should put a 75 ohm terminator on it.
Little silver screw on things, similar looking to the plugs on the end of cable TV co-ax. Radio Shack, Lowes, Home Depot.
Using a splitter in that circumstance is just a quick and dirty way to introduce some attenuation in the line, since they're more readily available, like maybe even at a drugstore available, than actual attenuators.
