Distribution Amp Help Needed

After I repositioned my antenna to the roof, pre-amp (cm 7778) located at the antenna, a single direct run (about 120') of RG-6 cable directly to the amp portion of the CM7778 located about a foot from my T151 I was able to get all of the Toronto and Buffalo channels including the WB WNYO 49-1 from Buffalo although weak.

As soon as I split the signal to supply an analogue signal to the tv, I lost 49-1 completely. After reading some of the threads it looks like I need to add a distribution amp.

My questions are:
1) Is adding a distribution amp the right approach? MATV distribution amp?
2) Should the distribution amp be installed between the pre-amp and amp or after?
