Question about home installation
here is the situation, I presently have 8300HD STB with internet and phone services. I chose a package with 20 choice channels plus (obligatory) base channels.
My place was wired for extra cable jacks but not in use...when the tech came by at first he asked if i wanted to plug in these extra jacks and i said no not for the moment.
he then showed me where to plug in the cable if ever i do get an extra TV for a different room.
I finnally purchased a new tv for this room and setup the cable just like he showed me. The main cable goes in a 3 way splitter. it then splits up to the cable going to my 8300Hd box, then another to the internet modem and the third one is the cable running to this extra cable jack in a different room.
when i set up my tv everything works fine for channel 3-4-5-6-7...then 8 and so on are very snowy...channels 40 and up seem to work fine...but every channel between 7 and 39 are very snowy...
my question is do i need a cable signal booster??? could it be that i split the signal to another tv and this is the reason why the picture isint clear???
Thanks for the help...im a bit of a newb when it comes to these things
