How to Use One Comcast Cable Box From Two Different Rooms

By Stephen Lilley

Comcast is a popular cable television service provider that requires a receiver box in order to view content. Typically, each television in your home needs its own receiver box to view channels; however, if you have televisions in two different rooms in your home but only own one Comcast cable receiver box, you can connect that box to both TVs using a coaxial cable splitter and coaxial cable. This allows the box to provide television content to both TVs.

Things You'll Need

  • Coaxial cable splitter
  • 3 coaxial cables

Step 1

Screw one end of a coaxial cable onto the "TV OUT" coaxial output on the back of your Comcast receiver box.

Step 2

Screw the other end of the same coaxial cable onto the "IN" input on your coaxial cable splitter.

Step 3

Connect one coaxial cable to each of the two "OUT" outputs on your cable splitter.

Step 4

Connect the opposite end of each of these two coaxial cables to the coaxial inputs on the back of your two television sets.

Tips & Warnings

  • Connecting two televisions to the same box will cause the TVs to display the same content simultaneously if both TVs are on. You will not be able to watch separate channels on two televisions connected to the same receiver box.
