Line filter/Audiotron question

I was able to pick up an Audiotron for $70 on clearance last week at a local computer store. I mostly got it setup, but I have a bit of a phone line issue.

All of my equipment is in the living room, where there is one phone jack. In the room, I already had a phone and two DirecTV receivers (HD and a DirecTivo). The wall has a splitter for the phone and DirecTV. The DirecTV units are on the other side of the room from the outlet, and have a long run going along the walls with another splitter at the end.

When I got SBC DSL installed, I had to put on line filters, or the phones had a lot of static. I put the filter at the wall plug with the splitter plugged into it.

All was fine and dandy (I think), until I tried to introduce the Audiotron. The Audiotron needs the HPNA, but the splitter where all my equipment is, is plugged into the phone jack. So here's what I did.

Wall - splitter. Splitter 1a - filter - phone, splitter 1b - other side of room - Splitter 2. Splitter 2a - HD DirecTV, splitter 2b - 2nd filter - DirecTivo and Audiotron.

And finally we get to my problem.... The Audiotron play is choppy, and I'm pretty sure it's all the crazy filtering/splitting/daisy-chaining going on. How can I reconfigure this so there aren't so many links in the chain?
