I'm looking to replace my Cable splitter with Taps

I'm using a cable splitter to split my comcast cable to 3 boxes, but I get some pixelation.

I was told that using Taps would be better. I noticed that the taps are a little different than splitters.

What taps can I use and were is the best place to order them from?

Tap spliters are  2 way.

What you need is a "high quality" digital splitter.

I highly recommend:

Extreme 3 Way Unbalanced HD Digital 1GHz High Performance Coax Cable Splitter - BDS103H by Extreme

You can buy it in Amazon for less than $5.

thanks. Could you tell me why the outputs are -7db, -7db, -3db.

What are they not the same outoput?
This is just design of this device. The hight priority is given to 2 outputs.

For you this probably does not matter, but if you had a copule  high demanding users in your home( for example a heavy gamer or a media lover who downloads music heavily) you would want to give 7db's to them.

I find this flexibilty useful.

Right now the line comes in and goes into a 2 way splitter, 1 line to the cable modem and 1 line to a 3 way splitter.

Should I leave the 2 ways splitter in and just use the 3way digital splitter, or get a 4 ways digital splitter and split to the cable modem and the 3 cable boxes?
