I have cable TV with a box in the living room to get the premium channels and just basic cable in the other three bedrooms. I just put another TV in the basement. I went to Radio Shack and purchased an AB switch thinking that if I hooked it up to a TV in one of the guest rooms that hardly gets used to the one in the basement that I could watch basic cable down there. However, I couldn't get it to work. It think it is just for hooking up a TV to a VCR. Someone told me to use a splitter but isn't that illegal? I'm sure if I called up Comcast and asked them they would say it was so they could come out and charge me for doing the work. How can I find out if this is legal to do and if it is, how would I go about installing it?

Use a splitter. If you are paying for cable and using it in your own home, there is nothing illegal about that.

If you want to make sure about its legality, check the "Terms and Conditions" specified in your contract.
