I moved into an apartment complex. When I hooked up my TV the cable tv service was on.

Then I ordered cable internet, they came and gave me the modem. The day that my modem activated my cable tv went out. I have internet (that I'm paying for), and no cable tv (which i'm not paying for).

However, if I'm using cable internet, can't I just disconnect my cable from my modem and use it on my TV?

Well, I tried that, and still just a bunch of fuzz. I've heard that you can just connect a splitter to the cable modem line and watch TV, however, wouldn't this be the same as just disconnecting from the modem and connecting to the TV (to which I received no picture).

Would buying a splitter make a difference, or is this just a myth?

I use Time Warner in Central Texas.

You said that: "A splitter just splits the signal that is coming in on the cable."
So, does that mean that the tv and the cablemodem have their own filters? I mean the tv has a low-pass filter (sound) and the cablemodem a high-pass filter (data). So, if i am paying for both services, am i able to switch the outlet of the splitter? One outlet, which is in the second floor, i can use some times with my cablemodem and others with my tv? And the same goes for the outlet which is in the first floor?

Hi, thanks for the answer.

Do you know what type of filter they use for the TV signal? Well, in the case for ADSL, low frequencies are for the telephone and high frequencies are for the internet.
And, how are the channels? I mean... for example, for ADSL are:

0-4 khz Telephone
4 khz-50 khz Send
50 khz - 1 Mhz Receive

How is it for cable?

:shame:No, No.

I am not trying to steal the service. I am studying a Telecommunications course. I wanted to know the differences between the ADSL and the Cablemodem.

Anyway thanks for the advice.
