Did you run the cable, is some of it in the walls from who-knows-when, did the house ever have satellite?
Good splitters are important. By good I do not mean “monster brand 3GHz gold plated splitters”, I mean “from a reputable brand”. If a house had direcTV and green label splitters were now being used for TV, all sorts of issues would pop up.
