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.
My HDB block TOP on 1998 and unlike newer HDB, there is no utility box inside the unit. By any chance is your block TOP on the similar year?
Before i reach out to starhub, I have actually called HDB then bounced to TC then lastly to starhub.

My flat top is 7 to 8 yrs ago but the utility box is outside which means the flat is not wired up with cat6 cables by HDB. If the main splitter is not in the box, why do they need to lock up the box? It's obviously to prevent access to their starhub antenna. Ymmv though.

I see i see, when you say utility box located outside, do you mean the riser?
For my side, except the electrical fuse box is inside, others are outside at the riser.
Thanks for the info too.

The same as TS and manyu, i got the moca adapters + the POE filter from amazon.
Literally plug-and-play... had some hiccups with the POE installation even though it was a just a bloody simple no-brainer <3mins installation.

Congrats. So you found your main splitter? Is it in the locked box?

Apparently not, still unable to locate the main splitter.. i had starhub technician to come and end up installed at the riser.

Yes, had to pay $42.80 which sucks.
It took me quite awhile to get them to check and understand. They give u more attention if you are starhub subscriber, else "insist you have cable problem which requires a technician to check" or "tell them you have MOCA network setup & need a technician to help locate the cable POE". My case was the later and i got the POE filter before arranging for the technician visit.
Apparently the technician who visit knows what i am talking about as opposed to the CS over the phone.
Anyway, the best option is to find your in-house main splitter.

Fyi, below is my setup which is very similar to what TS has in page1:



Update: To add in on the items I got for my moca setup
1. Actiontec Bonded MoCA 2.0, two pack(ECB6200K02) > http://a.co/6vVaLJ5
2. Holland Electronics MoCA POE Filter (low pass filter) > http://a.co/i48uq0r

Info:
> Other items such as cables & splitters remained unchanged.
I had reused the cables RG6 and normal splitter (5~1000mhz) as I read through the forums (found in first post) that MoCA is designed to work with normal splitters, except the old ferrite core splitters.
> To those who would want to extend WIFI, you could choose to get one bonded 2.0 adapter and another adapter with WIFI extender (WCB6200Q02), URL - http://a.co/ecF5boI

That is the main splitter/connection which leads into your flat from either the matv or starhub cable connection.
