    I need to split the audio and video signals from my satellite receiver (RCA connectors). Are there any problems with using a standard branching connector/splitter, and can I spit it twice (to 3 devices)? I want to take it to video recorder, TV and a projector.

    Each device that you hang on the end of the connector will load it. Outputs are designed to drive one load, not three. This could result in lower sound output (which you can probably compensate for), but it might also cause darker pictures, and maybe even picture sync problems. If this does occur, you will need a line amplifier.
