Over the course of the day I have been working to improve my houses coax network. I now have a crystal clear picture on every TV and my cable modem is now getting a signal well within specs. The only thing I have left to solve is the termination of the unused taps on my two splitters.
I would rather not pay anywhere from 7 to 10 bucks for a pack of terminators, so being the modder that I am, I started reading.
If I understand what I have read on several sites, all the terminator is, is a 75 ohm 1/2w resistor connected across the center conductor and the shielding. Am I correct?
