Hmmmm, the amplified splitter might
be an issue. Moca signals are on a higher frequency. Moca operates in the 850-1500 MHz range, and a lot of splitters and amps out there are rated to say 900Mhz or 1Ghz. Most devices have printed right on them their effective frequency range. Also, some amplifiers are not bi-directional and can be a problem.
With an eight-way splitter, your total length of cabling that the Moca signal will need to travel might get close to/exceed 300 feet, since the one cable discussed already takes 75'... I'd definitely be tempted to get extra filters and throw them on some of the taps that lead to longer runs to exclude them from the Moca parts of your wiring, or at least keep that in the back of my mind if the Moca speed or errors prove to be a problem.... specs are one thing, real world is another. Who knows, it might work fine with much longer cabling.
