    MoCA PoE filter question with external OTA antenna (no cable TV)

    Thanks for that….I’ll check it out :) Be good to future proof…..I’ve asked him to let me know what the price differential is on the CAT cables. Our main challenge is that our walls are insulated as well so not a lot of ‘give’ and we don’t really want cables (although enclosed) running across...

    MoCA PoE filter question with external OTA antenna (no cable TV)

    He thinks we should be ok as we’re not in a valley but near the top of our hilly neighborhood which is good. He’ll test everything but does not think a booster is necessary at this stage. Not too sure what type of antenna we have to be honest but the last tv signal inspection we had, the booster...

    MoCA PoE filter question with external OTA antenna (no cable TV)

    Hi degrub, yes he is. He is an ACMA cabler and does security systems as well as TV antennas, tuning etc. I’ve asked him to test our tv signal etc when he is up there . They look to be pointing in one direction.

    Thank you! :). Really appreciate all in the information! I have a much clearer picture in my head :)

    MoCA PoE filter question with external OTA antenna (no cable TV)

    He seems to think that with the 8-way splitter, the attenuation would be about 15dB (before MoCA). Our area is quite hilly so we can get spotty reception depending on weather. That is a lot of knowledge built up :). Thanks again for all your help!

    MoCA PoE filter question with external OTA antenna (no cable TV)

    I spoke with the cabler today and didn’t have too much confidence that the job would be that straight forward. At least he was willing to charge me a fixed rate. I spoke with him about MoCA and in terms of the LPF and splitter frequencies, shouldn’t be an issue getting these locally. His concern...

    Thanks for the reminder on the frequency. He told me they call it a LPF over here (quite similar). I'll also ask him about DOCSIS 3.1 as he used to lay the NBN cables as well and will be very familiar with the specifications etc. Thanks again for all the links and information!

    MoCA PoE filter question with external OTA antenna (no cable TV)

    I am such a newbie to all of this....never even heard of MoCA until a week ago when I was googling alternate networking possibilities! I have a cabler popping by on Friday for an inspection and to get a quote on possible options.

    MoCA PoE filter question with external OTA antenna (no cable TV)

    Good question....another poster also suggested this but there would be more challenges with this than to try and access the roof. The shape of the rooms and walls / doors make it quite difficult.

    Thank you again Tech Junky, degrub and krkaufman for all your detailed responses and for your patience in walking me through this. Your collective feedback has been invaluable :). The MoCA networking technology is not well known in Australia or widely used - Ethernet over Power is more common.

    Thank you! Do you have a preference? I was leaning towards the gocoax MA2500D (either that or the Actiontec)

    Just saw this and thank you for sharing this presentation. Very informative! :)

    MoCA PoE filter question with external OTA antenna (no cable TV)

    At least two rooms, maybe three. Unfortunately no due to the location of the NTD outlet / modem location. Not many option with current configuration unless we relocate the NTD modem and outlet elsewhere. We were limited with where we could place it when the NBN technician came to install it.

    We definitely have 7 outlets, therefore likely a 8-way splitter as you indicated.
