I'm running two tvs off a roof antenna with a rotor. A cable splitter is used with one cable running to each tv and its converter box. Tv1 has a relatively short cable run, Tv2 has a very long run around my house. The splitter is close to Tv1. For a certain weak channel, picture on Tv1 was good although signal was marginal (digital pictures being either good or broken up); picture on Tv2 would breakup occasionally or be unwatchable (no picture at all). I installed the amp just downstream of the splitter-out connector to Tv2. Before installing the amp, I could not receive the weak channel in question on Tv2. Afterwards, and based upon one days viewing, I experienced no picture breakup on Tv2 with a marginal signal strength similar to that displayed on Tv1. As I write this, Tv2 signal strength for the weak channel in question is ranging from 45 to 60% with no picture or sound breakup. Signal strength for a good quality picture should be 65% (in the green) according to my Digital Stream converter box. The antenna rotor is directed to what seems to be an optimum direction and not changed for each channel. Further improvement would be to add another amp just upstream of the splitter or make my cable runs shorter, as I have much excess.

I bought this amplifier when I finally decided to kick the cable company in the pants. My house is about 22 miles from most of the Television Stations that I want to watch and the house is also on a very high hill. One drawback I have is that there are some tall trees between my house and the TV stations. I have two new HDTVs, and the coax cable from the new Channelmaster 2020 antenna on the roof is about 35' long to the amplifier. From the amp, I split the signal and the cable to each TV is about 40' long. I tested my antenna without the amplifier and got about 14 digital channels. The signal strength was shown as 82% and -53db for channel 12-1 on my television. After this test, I installed the amplifier and rescanned the television channels. With the amplifier installed I now got 20 digital channels and the signal strength on channel 12-1 was now 86% and -42 db. I am now able to receive two channels that my directional antenna isn't pointed at and the stations are about 35 miles away. This amplifier won't "create" a signal that doesn't exist, but it might help you pull in one or two fringe channels that you couldn't get without it. It's a good deal for the price.

I purchased one of these for my in-laws who live over 50 miles from the tv stations and with the analog converter box they were not receiving all the channels. Once we attached this box to their tv they were able to receive all the available channels and they were very pleased. I also purchased one for myself to use with our new digital tv in the hope of sharpening up some of the programs that appear to be a little fuzzy, but it did not seem to improve that area for me. I assume it is because those programs are not being broadcast in high definition yet.

  • Closer to antenna.

  • The closer to the antenna the better. because the cable itself has losses. The amplifier overcomes these losses and sends a strong signal down the cable. However, even attached to the end of a cable 20 feet long still works fine.

  • The closer to the antenna, the better, but don't mount it where it might get rained on. An attic should be fine.

  • all amplifiers should installed as close to the source as possible. the reason for this is if installed near a tv it will ampliy not only the signal but all noise al well. by putting it as close to the source you eliminate as much of the noise before the amplification.

  • We had DirecTV, and we used their wiring and mounting brackets when installing a $38 Channel Master 2016 DIGITAL ADVANTAGE (HDTV / VHF / UHF) Outdoor Antenna, with this booster. So we attached the booster inside the house where the DirecTV wires came out of the wall. The booster is between the TV and the wall. It works great! It only took us about an hour to install everything, but we needed a 10-foot ladder to get up on the roof to the old satellite.

  • It's best closest to the antenna, but certainly indoors. And it's best if it's 1 cable from the amplifier to the tv.
