You mentioned that you used 100' of cable. What cable RG-6? RG-59 is not acceptible. Center conductor is too small and shielding is inadequate. You say you used a n RF amp with 20 dBof boost. What brand. It must be a 1 gHz amp. If you have Digital cable , you should use a return path amp, also. What kind of splitters did you use? Should be 1 gHz splitters. 900 mHz splitters don't cut it. Who put the fittings on and who put them on? You should use RG-6 fittings that are properly crimped on. All of these factors are very important, and if you don't do it this way, you likely will have problems. If you do not know the answer to these questions, that explains why you are having these problems.
I'm using RG-6 cable....not sure of the brand of amplifier...I got it at my local high end stereo shop ....$19.99.......I was able to use it without the splitter......My receiver is a Dish 501PRO ........I could've sworn I saw 2.4Ghz on the back of the amp...I'll have to remove it from the wall and check. The amp is chrome and plugs into the wall......I did notice a screw that can be adjusted on the amp and the word "tilt" is by it...any other suggestions?
