Hi All, I'm on a boat, about 170ft from the utility post. Recently our cable company switched to the wonderful world of Digital TV. I got the new digital converter and had no picture. I took the box back and got a second box, still no picture. So now I suspect a weak signal and confirm that it is the cable length. The cable company came out and gave me a better cable than I had installed. At this point I have a picture but it is intermittent. The signal at the utility post has 3 outputs and had a four way splitter, I suggested the cable guy put in two 2 way splitters and give me the stronger (first) tap. That got my signal to work almost all the time. I'd like to get the signal to work 100% of the time. I don't has access to electricity at the utility post, so an amp is out. Although I could try an amp at the cable box end. Is that reasonable? I would run two cables if there was a way to make it increase signal strength. Getting anymore from the cable company is not an option. Any ideas to get a better signal? Mikek
When the signal fails it seems channel 41 is ok and above 42 it breaks up. Curious to know if there is an unusual frequency jump between those two digital channels.
