I have the Panamax MR-5300, and I have the coaxial cable in to it, then to the cable box. Is this necessary? I feel I could be losing picture quality but I am not 100 percent. How do you guys have it connected?

Anything inserted in the cable generally results in a degradation of the signal. While that might be noticeable on analog, we deal with digital, here. Digital is digital. It's all or nothing. If you're not getting picture breakups, then you're good. Picture quality isn't going to be affected with digital other than breakups, freezes or total loss of picture.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Okay perfect thank you. I did notice I have a quick break up here and there with like gray bricks. But I would rather have my TV protected and live with that small issue. Thanks so much.
