You should take the 4 TVs that are closest to the amp and use a splitter on 2 ports off the amp for those. I guess one cable goes upstairs and another cable goes around the house.

I believe no other part of the house is using cable so I can just throw out that 3-way splitter and replace it with a 1-way splitter? ThanksReply Dennis Restauro saysOctober 31, 2015 at 10:53 amDoes the extreme channel loss happen when connecting it to a specific TV?

Well, I got a spiffy DT TiVo in the living room now, which of course requires yet another splitter!

    Most of the ones I've seen are just components soldered together, as opposed to being mounted on a printed circuit board, as well as epoxied instead soldered (the back). Amplifier gain is used to overcome loss in the line and noise from the digital tuners on the TV.This distinction is important. I'd try the splitter because they are cheap. I will have a 8-9 signal then it drops out to 6 or5 and many times the picture goes off.

    Any way to figure out what's going on? They are a great brand and I've never had any issue with any of their equipment. i am hiring someone to set up antenna to feed 3 tvs, but i cannot imagine where the wiring goes? If so try lowering the antenna.

    Is it possible to use my cable from my dish. From there it will be routed back to the second floor to a TV and a cable routed to the TV on the first floor. Thread Status: Not open for further replies.

    I also plugged it back into just one tv without any splitter and only get 3 channels now?

    Also use high-quality RG-6 cable with good shielding and high quality connectors to prevent any additional loss or interference. Or am I too outdated in my thinking? But every time you split a cable or antenna signal, you lose at least 3 to 4 dB of signal strength. Whether or not you need an amp would depend on how many tv lines you were going to have.

    I just don't understand it. Here is our TVfool report: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3de2cbdf24f6fb42 Only hooking to one TV. Kmcg saysDecember 21, 2016 at 10:07 amI want to run an pre amp on the antenna and am confused.Can the power for the amp be hooked up to one of the I get 9 channels on three tvs most if the time, otherwise they cut in and out.

    On one of those tvs the signal is great on the other I have significantly fewer channels. I have the Mohu Sky 60 right now and am in the process of trying to install it. If this is like greater than -15 dBmV then one of two things is wrong and need to be fixed:1.) the wiring from your telephone pole to your home needs to LED flicker, has technology eliminated it?

    Thank you for your input. Because ingress of signals outside of the expected band can cause interference, which you don't want. The input hooks to the ground block, the low loss leg goes to your cable modem, the lossy side goes to your TV distribution. –Fiasco Labs Mar 4 '12 at 18:52 Regards, -Chris Keep those cards and letters coming!

    You can usually get by with having two splitters before the modem but I have seen cases where it just would not work for some reason or another but 99% of For a job like this what antenna would you recommend? The Lava will only feed one TV however that particular TV will also need the Bowtie antenna to pick up Jacksonville Florida channels better.
