Equal cable length doesn't matter in this application.
Thank you for that response! Of the two possibilities you mention, the cabling seemed much more likely to be suspect, as it included several DIY compression connectors on my RG6 quad, and it as the first time I had done those. So I went back to research my compression methodology and realized I had unknowingly removed the second (inner) layer of foil wrap. So I went back and removed those connectors and did them again the RIGHT way, and rescanned andBAM!
60+ channels (as opposed to 7 previously) including the problematic hi VHF channels 9 and 11 AND the elusive, 48 mile distant ION 41 which I had given up ever getting without putting the antenna on the roof rather than in the attic!
. And only using the CM 4228HD. Took the ANT 751 back out first to see if the cabling alone would do it, and clearly it did!
All the channels come in rock solid - in fact I now have probably twice as many channels as we ever got with Basic cable from Comcast. I probably won't watch a number of these channels, including a bunch of shopping channels and some that appear to be duplicates, but I get everything I hoped for ... and more!
So thanks for the input and feedback/suggestions from everyone here! I obviously couldn't have done it without you. I was wondering if I should just give up, and in my case at least, found it was as simple as poorly done compression connectors! So to those struggling: don't give up!
Off now to enjoy my scads of free TV! Cheers all!Edited by hanesian - 1/15/14 at 12:24pm
