Now I tested it with a belkin pureav splitter and found out that the signal was very weak in the bedroom (possibly because of the long cable length?). Tried with direct connection (without splitter), my bedroom tv picked up about 30ish channels (basic cable) compared to the 70ish channels by living room TV (same direct connection). Adding on the splitter, the signal dropped significantly, bedroom tv can only pick up one barely usable channel (all pixelation), while the living tv is still picking up all the channels.
Comcast now wants to charge me for any service call and would not provide an amplifier. What is my best bet for an inexpensive amplifier just for the TV signal amplifier? I looked around amazon, and it looks pretty expensive for those bo-directional one output amplifier, all runs from 40ish and above.
In the meantime, I think I'll need to check with a comparable long coaxial cable to see if that length really attenuates signal that much. What do you think, cabling issue or signal attenuation issue?
Thanks a lot.
