So glad I've got my own antennas so that I am not tied up with TWC (except their internet). This setup works good for me along with Netflix. TWC has not endeared themselves to anyone with the...

I've got the older CM-7777 preamp. It didn't overload when I used it before; however, it was facing toward Charlotte only when that preamp used to be hooked up to my Clearstream 4. Now that I've...
