I tried the 300 ohm splint repair, after stripping wires, keeping proper distance distance between wires. Still, Mom gets 27 local channels at 90 % signal, but WPVI 6 says no signal. 300 ohm brown wire was probably original inside 55 year old house. Wire downlead is about 15 years old, and is black and foam core.
I installed balun transformer at down lead, and I ran a 25ft RG6 from house entry point to dtt900, same results,
I tried swapping out the DTT900 for another that I have at my house (WPVI works at my house), just to eliminate a box failure, same results.
I recall, that i did actually get 6WPVI before removing the old splitter.
Is it possible that WPVI6 is TOO strong?
The most annoying thing is considering 9.2 miles from antenna farm in manayunk, all channels 3, 10.1, 10.2, 12.1,2,3 17.1,2 (23.1 (!New Jersey!) 29, 44 (don't know) 48,1,2,3,4,5, 57, 61,1 ION, abunch of 62,s 65,s, all come in at 90% signal.
What could be different about WPVI6/ (UHF RF64). Watching the DTT900 try to tune in WPVI6, I see a jump to about 90 percent, then it drops to 30 % bad.
Where do I go from here, active splitter, inline amplifier, passive splitter.
Would an FM demodulator help?
Toy trains are like women's breasts, designed for children, but older men end up playing with them.
