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...

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...

This product works great. Plugged everything in and now there is no more static. Picture is clear and receiving all the HD channels. Easy to use too.

JUNK

 

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...

Kills Internet service, Limited Compatibility, Poor Design, Poor Performance

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....

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...
