"cable tv through cable modem"
If anybody knows for sure if I can hook up a tv off of a jack used for a cable modem let me know. I don't have cable tv service but if I sign up for cable modem service can I split that to a tv and run both at the same time? Please leave a post and email me. Thanks.

Yes!!

The cable medium is the same whether you connect it to your TV or cable-modem. I'm doing that very thing here in my office. When I elected to try @home service I thought "Well, if it doesn't work out at least I'll have a connection for TV in here." I fell in love with an average connection speed of 3Mbps so now I have both my TV and computer connected here in my office with a splitter at the wall.

Good luck

You could only do that if you signed up for both cable and internet sevice. If you didn't sign up for cable, you won't be able to watch cable tv.

I've seen various posts where some say if you dont have cable tv service you wont get it, or that they put a filter on to block it etc.

Well, I didnt have cable tv service. He came, installed the new line...I asked him if it was one signal and if I hooked up a tv would I get cable and he said he thought so. As soon as he left I tried it and lo and behold I am getting cable tv! Even HBO! So I just split the cable and have it going to my tv in my bedroom and the other to the computer! I was psyched!

So I guess you just have to try it!

Pating ofr only one service and taking both is illegal. Be aware you may face fines or criminal charges.

LMAO!!! Don't people these days have the money to get both Cable TV and Cable modem? If not, get a job! If you already have a job, get off your lazy @$$ and get a 2nd job!

I don't mean to offend anyone, but if you want something, you have to WORK for it. You don't get anywhere by trying to 'steal' something. And that's FACT!

Depends on how many outlets you have for tv service. If the signal is strong enough, it'll work but if not, your wasting your time.

Also be aware that although a TV will work on the same line as your Cable Modem service, you could knock the data offline if your TVs are not trapped.

You need to get an upstream trap put on every set so the voltage from your TV doesn't get sent back upstream. This is the same effect as picking up the telephone on a line where someone is dialed up to the internet. Although it doesn't knock them off every time, it can knock them off.

I believe you can go to your cable provider's office and they will provide you with a trap for your TV set if you tell them you are installing a new outlet yourself and don't want to interfer with your cable modem service.

You MUST filter TV's from DATA! SO let your cable company do its job and you pay for it.

Your TV or whatever can cause major problems to cable modem users - including major intermittant internet connections, etc.

Yes you can. I have cable and tv connection coming from the same wall outlet. A splitter sends the cable to the TV

Yeh you could but it would slow down your internet connection. If you are running 1mbs you could end up with like 700kbs.
