57: Is there a proper order for having splitters and signal amps, or is it different with each situation?
My two cents.Per post 631, for the longest time I had the amp first, and all was fine until I threw an 8642 in the mix. Per 57's advice I removed the amp, and ended up moving it downstream so that it only feeds those rooms where the signal is quite week (after a hundred feet of crappy cable ). It actually made a difference as all my black channels came back.
But then the black channels surfaced again, becuase, as we all know, this firmware is not stable.
I did a lot of research today, as the status quo is not acceptable, even with a free 8642 and larger discounts.
I am weighing these options:
) Bring back my fully working SA 8000HD to the den (our main room) so as to save the marriage. Throw the free 8642 in the bedrroom; let it crap out there. Enjoy my discount. Hope they will fix the firmware before I die, If I do this I am locked in for one year. But after that one year, I need to either purchase or rent or return the free 8642. At that point, if the forums still confrim issues, I drop Rogers.
) If I act in the next 15 days, I can decline the free offer Rogers gave me (as its within 30 days), and can leave Rogers (phone, LD, internet, cable) without any cancellation fees. I would only keep cells.
Almost there, just need to think it through.
