Yes, it did, but in the house I run it through a 6-way splitter and distribute it to many TV's, then just before I connect it to my Dish receiver I split it in two, one to the Dish receiver and one to my Sanyo 55" HDTV tuner.
Without that last splitter I was swamping the Dish 622 tuner...
I can rotor to Atlanta, Columbus, Mississippi, and pick up all those locals, but rarely do that since one set of locals from Montgomery and one set (Dish) from Birmingham covers everything I need.
These photos show my tower with the Winegard on top, my Dish Network dish mounted to the tower near the roof, and my Wildblue Satellite internet dish on a pole mount.
When you live in the boonies you need all these technologies..
