This is more of a technical question....but I figured I would ask here first since it does relate to local Baton Rouge reception. I am attempting to get OTA HD on an iMac in my PC room with a USB ATSC HD Tuner attached. I have also decided to run signal to my Livingroom so I can enjoy primetime in HD on my widescreen TV without the annoying pixelations and signal breakup from COX cable. (They have been to my house five times in the last year, but are unable to fix the problem......my guess is weak signal and they won't admit it because they will not spend the money to increase it at the headend.) I have decided to try the CM 4228 in my attic and I will need to split that signal between these two rooms. Will I need an amplifier of some sort? How much does it weaken the signal when you split it? I obviously would need all the local channels, but would also be interested in NO or Lafayette channels if that's possible. If I do need an amp, is there a good standard that comes recommended? I understand that if you have a bad signal coming in, it won't do much good to amplify a bad signal, but maybe it will help if you are splitting the signal.
Thanks in advance,
By the way I live at the south end of Bluebonnet.
