Been searching for sometime on here and I'm still stuck with a couple questions....
Dropped cable going OTA for now
I picked up a Eagle Aspen Dtv2Buhf Directv 2-Bay Uhf Antenna (similar to DB2 (can't tell any difference 'cept price)) I wanted the one antenna to run both tv's in the house. Upstairs mounted inside in the window I do really good for reception, so what I want to do is connect antenna to the existing cable wiring in house, that goes downstairs to the splitter for the whole house.
I was able to source a 8 output amplifier (Antronix VRA900/ACP) which I believe qualifies for as an amplifier and not a preamplifier.
Currently I get all local channels in decent quality (upstairs) even though I'm some 30 miles south of the major towers in the area, Downstairs with a lesser antenna I have issues with signal quality, constantly adjust antenna to get certain channels, but it seems I can pretty much get them all, (not at the same time).
So I'm trying to figure out if,
1. If I should use the amp and where? Upstairs or downstairs splitting sources... 30'-40' line to downstairs splitter, and two 30' runs out of the splitter back to tv's. All decent quality cable and splitters.
2. How to hook the stupid amp up.... no instructions.... Has separate power source a splitter and the amp itself. I think it's something like power supply to splitter to amp, but then I'm not totally sure if it just goes in the input or the VOIP or Output 1 spot... Then I tie the antenna in the input spot?... I suspect I'll somehow figure this out someday, but I don't want to burn up the amp testing.... See pic
3. Will this work? Any additional comments? I'm a bit curious if the will help me or hurt me, I know too much signal is a problem too. I suppose it's easy enough to test once I figure out the amp.
(Panasonic G15 and Vizio 32inch 1080 Java case it matters...)
Edit: I believe this was the proper forum to post this question.
