Consumer review by: 4pitysake (

Didn't work


I bought this unit to improve the HD signal on several channels that tend to pixelate or the picture breaks up. I hooked up the unit and did everything according to the user manual and it didn't improve anything. I'm returning it to Radio Shack in the...

Solved HDTV freezing!


I've got 3 HDTV's and a cable modem sharing the same cable signal. I was seeing image freezing on each of the HDTV's and occasional performance drops in the cable modem performance. I installed this amplifier (in a weatherproof PVC box) between...

Consumer review by: Dale the keyboard player (

solved my problem with pixelation


I actually have this unit with 4 outputs, not 1, at a slightly higher price. After I plugged it in, my two remote tvs no longer showed pixelation, or lost the sound. It made my wife very happy.

Works good!


The product works as advertised -- boosts the signal quality and allows the cable box to communicate out. In my case, I have a big house with a 20 cable splitter so I need to boost the signal. I am happy with the purchase.

Answer To My Prayers


My Comcast signal (verified by Comcast) is very marginal coming into my house at a remote location. Not to mention the previous owner did a lousy job installing "Smart" system wiring when he built the house. I was getting missing HD channels and tiling...

Consumer review by: motodude (



Works fine for TV use, but does nothing for cable modem. CHEAP plastic housing (guaranteed to give RFI problems which would violate FCC Regs). I think they should carry a quality one like Motorola, I here they actually work. No local source for those...

Works well.


This unit flat out works. I live in the sticks, probably 50 miles from the nearest broadcast antenna and I get 39 channels from two cities. Thanks.

Solved My Problem!


Lots of Tvs in our home but only one had a problem with low quality picture on lots of channels and a major problem with pixels breaking up and freezing on HD channels so I didn't want to bother with having to connect anything outside or in the attic....

Consumer review by: Tinkerer (

Works as advertised - Great Product!


I have a run of almost 100 feet of coax before it gets to my home theater location. Adding to that is the addition of a Sling Box, a HD Tivo, a Digital receiver from the cable company, a Blu-ray player and a Sony DVD Player/Recorder. As one can...
