I want to move a TV from one room to another. One room has an active cable connection and the other has an inactive connection. I cannot find the signal splitter to change the connection. Any ideas on where the splitter may be located? This is a 10 year old, single family home.

Basement, attic, crawlspace, & closet (removable panel?). Attached garage?

Possibly does not exist and is a direct run.

Start by finding where the coaxial cable enters your house and try to trace it from there.

If it enters directly behind the working jack, it's likely a direct run by the cable company who did not tie into your existing (questionable quality) wiring.
