Reception gets worse with amplifier installed

Was having trouble getting ABC and sometimes Fox in my area. After inserting the RCA amp into the circuit, ABC channel lost all signal and FOX was just as sporadic as before. This did nothing for me, so I sent it back. Try something else.
15 ft coax not even a long cable run

Does what it says.

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 require this product

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.

does just what I expected

We were losing local cable feeds due to long runs and multiple splitters (fuzzy channels and blocking/complete loss of some digital feeds). Installing this before long cable run and splitters to TVs and everything cleared up with absolutely no loss of digital programming.

Good product.

This Amp really improved my my signal strength. I would recommend it to anybody.

Waste of My Time to try this RCA Amp

I tried putting this RCA Amp in several locations between my Antenna and TV. It made no difference in the Amount of Signal displayed at my TV. I had read the 'reviews' of others before I ordered it. It seems to be about half and half between Customers getting good results, and those who did not see any improvement. Guess my system is one that does not see any improvement. I really had hoped it would work. You may one who will benefit from trying this RCA Amp. After all, Walmart will accept your 'return' of it, if it does not work for you. I returned the one I tried to Walmart

Worked great for me.

I am about 45-55 miles from the T.V. stations. I am down in a low area and my outside antenna is about 30 foot high. I am surrounded by a pine forest. Signals were weak and dropping in a out and some were out nearly all day. After adding the amplifier at the end of run close to T.V. I am now getting all channels with no loss. It did the trick. Worked good and very inexpensive.

Works good

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.

worth the money

I was adding a tv to a cable outlet and i needed to split the signal. i tried it without this unit and the picture quality was horrible. I added this unit and both tv's show better than when i had one tv to the cable outlet. Well worth the money.

Locally very helpful

I am just using rabbit ears antennas and this really brought the local channels in much better plus adding about ten extra channels I wasn't getting before!
