That is not amplified.....
to illustrate what you are trying to do, here are your splits:
1 to 2 = -3db (50%)
2 to 4 = -3db (50%)
4 to 8 = -3db (50%)
so end up with a little more than 10% of the signal to each of the 8 outputs (12.5%) but that assumes NO loss anywhere else, which is not the case. Each F-connector has loss....
What you are doing is just not physically possible unless you had a sufficient signal to begin with (which you dont because you said it was "fuzzy")
you have to spring for an aplifier. You dont need a 1x8, amplify the main feed, and see how that works (it almost always does).

* Gold-flashed contacts on 2.05 GHz units provide lowest conductive resistance.
* Use with the video amplifier for increased signal strength.
* Splits video signals.
* Die-cast housing and printed circuit board.
* Outputs for up to 4; 6 or 8 televisions.
I saw the RF Distribution Amplifiers 1x8 and they're like $500. I'm looking to spend like $50 if possible. That's way out of my price range for a splitter.
Also, what's the difference in GHZ? I noticed a lot are 1GHZ. This one is 2GHZ. Does that matter?
