IC.. I don't think can install moca directly to any of the port at the splitter As frequency outside 5~1000mhz is already blocked at the "IN" port. Deca adapter should work as they operate in between that frequency. And if u want deca, u Have to disconnect CATV cable that is connected to the "IN" port of your flat's main splitter

or install a band Filter (which operates out from deca frequency) at your flat's main splitter.


Another way is to replace the splitter ( shown in the pic)with MoCa. Then connect a cable from the "OUT"
port of the moca back to the splitter. And if u can confirm that the main splitter for your flat unit has a filter to block off moca signal going back to the grid, you are good to go.

i see i see, had the same thought too which you had helped confirming it.
Those wall ports splitter i don't mind changing myself but then..... I cant locate the main splitter . Therefore, the theory where if the main splitter operate between 5-1000mhz, it would mean MoCA frequency would not pass the main splitter thus connection is not establish to other rooms (coaxial ports). The most headache issue is where the F is the main splitter? scv box is locked and i dunno who has the keys to it........

What is highest deca's bandwidth .. .googled and nah, I will pass...

Through assumption and a replace of existing splitters at the living, master and common room, will MoCA work?



to add: I dont even have a tv at home hence no cabletv, etc. Those scv/coaxial cables are there collecting dusts/rot.

Scv box is locked means starhub has the keys to it. Same as my flat.

Moca signal can pass through between "OUT" ports . Except those with isolators, which needs to be identified what frequency it can pass though..

If u know someone who has moca to spare, u can borrow theirs and try to establish connection between your house and Neighbours' .

Yeah, called HDB got routed to TC then lastly to Starhub. The starhub hotline guy said he will need to arrange for a "callback" by other team as he do not have the details, though he did confirm scv box is under starhub and main splitter is inside.

oh good to hear!

Sadly, no one i know personally has MoCA setup. I only read on this on some other forums and did a google search which directed me to this thread. It is great seeking info and help from you all

OMG! thanks @candrox for sharing the pics! it helped alot especially when my intended setup is just like yours - where i only need connection to one of the common room.
After some reading i realise i do not even need to change the room splitters unless necessary. So now i am only missing the POE filter part, yet to verify.......

ps: under Coax Splitter section, the 2nd and 3rd URL are not working

Thanks, updated the post. Hope the photos make it easier to understand the setup.

Yes, it did help alot! especially i am planning a very similar setup.

quick check, did you change this main splitter? I am still waiting for starhub's callback.. seems like team is ignoring me

No, my Coax splitter is fairly new - I just opened it and checked that it had an integrated circuit (and not ferite cores).
Starhub - try to speak with a team-leader or manager to escalate the issue.

You ask them to come down they will charge you one. Be warned.

BTW, just for curiosity sake, if we install poe filter at each and every point of the moca setup, will it have the same effect as installing a moca filter at the main splitter?
Asking since there is the possibility of us not being able to access the main incoming splitter without starhub cooperation.

They actually called back, though ding dong through various team. End up they told me the POE & main splitter is inside my rented unit and they will not do anything, especially to the riser.
This is the worst scenario for me as i could not find the main splitter, probably hidden somewhere in the false ceiling and my landlord do not even have a clue.

I dont mind paying, I even told them i will supply the POE filter if they do not have it but they say they will not do anything to the riser.

*edit* Sry, i mis-read the last part of your post, please ignore below.... (seems like my case, cant find the main splitter)
I believe as long as the POE filter is installed before the main splitter then it will work. You can refer to this blog provided by @candrox - http://www.drmoron.org/tv-moca/
Spoiler!

Not sure about your case. For my house the main splitter is definitely inside the locked box as I got a good look years ago when I subscribed and then unsubscribe to starhub TV.

The reason why they locked the box is that there is 2 main splitter inside. One from the rooftop master antenna and the other is the splitter from Starhub TV. If you subscribe to starhub TV, they will just plug your house main splitter to their starhub TV splitter and you will be able to watch their programmes, losing access to free to air TV signals from the master antenna in the process.

I think you should call town council or HDB to verify whether your main splitter is inside that box or not.
