Can I use this splitter to split incoming foxtel signal before the iq box to take straight to another tv. I realise
I will have to watch whatever is on the main tv ( iq box )?
"This product splits the coaxial connection coming in from the street. If you have a second box subscription (two separate Foxtel boxes) then you can connect them both to the Foxtel socket in your wall.
It is also able to split the signal from a rooftop antenna to send free to air TV stations to two TVs with built-in tuners, or a TV and a PVR, etc."

Could I use this to split between foxtel IQ and my cable broadband modem? If I do, will there be any signal loss?
"Yes! The Foxtel side may need a filter (available from Foxtel) to ensure there's no interference, but our F-type splitter definitely has the frequency range to cope with both broadband internet and digital Foxtel services coming in on the same cable. We would recommend double checking with Foxtel and your ISP, as their installer may provide a filter and splitter when connecting your services."

I have a Foxtel outlet in my living room, which I will be using for cable internet, I won't be subscribing to Foxtel). Can I connect the 2 Way Foxtel Splitter to this single Foxtel outlet to service both my cable modem and tv for Freeview free to air?
"We haven't had any hands-on experience with a Freeview receiver, but if it connects directly to a Coaxial wall socket for internet access, then this splitter should be perfect for the job. Please check if this is the case, as your Freeview box may connect to your broadband modem via ethernet, not the F-type cable internet wall socket.
We list it as a Foxtel splitter because it has the frequency range to handle Foxtel signals, but it works equally well for splitting all types of F-Type coaxial signal, including free to air RF data from antennas and also cable internet, etc."

I have an Austar HD satellite box with two antenna inputs. When we travel we take the box with us but only have one antenna cable from the satellite dish. Can I use this splitter to give me two inputs for the one box?
"Absolutely. This splitter supports all RF signals including FTA, Foxtel and Austar. Just like at home, you'll get both tuners running for simultaneous watching and recording and similar features which require both tuners."

Is it possible, with this splitter, to work in reverse? I have a single outlet in the media room but the Foxtel box require two. One for fox and other for FTA. Can this be used to join 2 into a single cable to the media room and then split it again back to two?
"No, this adapter is only suitable for duplication of a single signal. Mixing two RF signals together would make them unrecoverable."
