So what is the suggested dBmV level straight from the cable pole and what adequate SNR? From what you say, my readings aren't to spec straight from outside directly connected to the DVR with no splitters, extensions, etc.
They are actually mid 30's and drop for a second or two then go up to normal. The straight cable to the DVR will give me a 0dBmV signal on both 1 & 2 with 36dB or so SNR. And yes the poll is not infront of my house, it is somewhere in the middle of the houses surrounding mine.
What do you mean the cable problem? The line is straight from the pole outside coming into the building, so there isn't much they can do on their part, we've tried. It was worse before I got a dedicated line. The problem starts when I split it 4 ways.
Thanks, but is that one better than the PCT 4 way amplifier that has the same specs and better isolation? I had tried the PCT amp before, but it killed my Local HD channels. I heard good things about the Motorola 4 Way Amp that is similar to the one you recommended and the PCT I tried.
I am reviving this thread because I need help again. My cable channels are acting weird especially my local HD channels and its just on my box and on one elses in the household. They run on a different cable line from outside than me, so I am wondering whats going on. Some channels are flawless, some drop a second of audio, and my locals sometimes look pixelated and drop audio randomly for a few seconds also. This is my current readings only using a 4-way splitter from...
I have an Onkyo TX-SR508 with some BIC Acoustech PL-89 Speakers for Front. The problem is that they were cleaning my room and move my speakers and they connected the two wires to one port i.e. Red & Black. I quickly put it back when I noticed it wasn't working, but now I have a problem. That speaker doesn't work completely when its at low level, but for some reason when I high the volume to a high level, it triggers it to turn on. Can this be the Receiver or Speaker...
