Haven't posted in a long time but I don't know what to do or what may be happening.
Had a Satellite install guy come out and check out my setup for issues a few months ago. I have a Winegard MS-1000 and live in the 28214 area. He installed an Antronix FRA8 amp at my cable junction box to the house. Everything was working great for a few months and then all of a sudden the signal just went out. Went outside and pulled the amp out and connected everything back and it appeared the amp went bad. However when I fed power to it in the house, the green indicator light lit up, showing it was working. I hooked up the power supply to another cable run and whalah it is working still. However the cable run that it was originally hooked into, the TV will not pickup hardly any channels with or without the amp hooked up. Also hooked it up to our 3rd cable run and it wouldn't get any power to the amp despite the 3rd cable run not being used by a TV.
I just don't know what is causing 2 cable outlets to not pass power to the amp but one will? Also why the 1 outlet that originally had the power supply on, the TV can't hardly receive any channels: picking up maybe 12 vs 42 channels with other TV.
Lastly back in the day, I was able to get 58.1 in my area and now I can't get it. I had my antenna disconnected for the longest time because we have Time Warner cable Internet and TW piped in the analog channels in the clear with local HD. Did that for the longest until TW decided to finally put a trap on the line out at the box by the street, Hey no problem, I just went out to the box and reconnected the antenna and I was back in business. Anyway I noticed that I didn't get 58.1 like I use to and I am pretty sure I got the antenna pointed to the optimal direction for the best reception from the main 2 towers in my area. I spent a good amount of time finding the sweet spot using this to go by,

Currently getting channels:
and the sub-channels to those. Was getting 7.1 WSPA with 2 bars but now it is gone.
Sorry for all the questions btw...
