On my HD cable box, I notice there is occasional pixelation and picture breakup. This could be due to the fact that my cable signal is split in half because I also use it for internet. So, I could be losing signal. I saw a $10 signal amplifier at RadioShack and I’m wondering if those things really work. For those of you who tried these signal amplifiers, have they worked well for you?
BTW- Yes, I know I can call the cable company, but that’s just a hassle. They put you on hold from so long and they try to find ways to get out of helping you. Not to mention that the people they send over don’t really know much. So, I’d rather fix this issue myself, if possible.
