It's either a brick or lower profile similar to this one.
Yesterday morning my AB Switch was working fine. I decided to test out my ROKU for a while before I left for the day. After I was finished I switched back to my cable input. My screen was blank, my AB Switch was stuck
on A, and wouldn't switch to B. I tried the box & remote several times. The antenna signal works fine. I had to leave, so I left it to deal with later.
When I returned I was planning to swap out the coax from the B side of the switch. I decided to try the AB Switch again, it was working. I tried it a few times, it kept working. So I decided to leave well enough alone.
I even tried ROKU for a bit, without issues. Later on last night I used ROKU to watch a movie. After the movie the switch was stuck on A again.
I left it like that and went to sleep.
Last time I checked today, about an hour ago it's still stuck.
So you think it may be the AB Switch powercord? What about the cable line coax?
Here is my layout I am working with. It sucks I know, but I'm in an older apartment.
Another possible piece of this puzzle can be this.
I'm using a TP-Link Powerline (TL-WPA8630 KIT) if it matters. The Powerline LED light (#2 of 5) has been changing from Green, yellow, and red at various times.
But my ROKU & Blu-ray player are both connecting to the internet without issues. So I was thinking that was because I didn't setup the WiFi feature of this Powerline.
I haven't really needed it because I haven't used my laptop for internet, just my tablet. That has been working off my W.A.P. connection. I know TMI, but maybe this could
help solve my problem.
So what are the thoughts? Bad AB switch, switch powercord? Does my setup need to be reconfigured? Is my Powerline the problem? Do I need to replace my Cable IN coax cable?
Or is it a combination?
I've been looking for a new AB Switch and I found these at several sites.
I also found this:
The things I don't like are that they're manual, and the buttons are big. But the manual part may eliminate one problem. The ABC Switch would be handy if I decide to add the second antenna to my setup.
Instead of joining two antenna signals with a joiner/coupler, I'd run two coax cables from each antenna [A & B]. While a third coax for cable [C]. Would that fix my problem? Or would it cause more?
If I did get the ABC Switch and the second antenna didn't work quite right, could I still use it with two connections?
