FAQ - Signal Leakage Between CATV and OTA

15688 Views 14 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  hugh
If anyone is contemplating running a combination of Cable TV and OTA to the same TVs or receivers, there are specific safeguards you must take to isolate the two signals from eachother. This is not a casual concern, its very important that you do it correctly!

Likewise if you are getting Cable TV channels on your OTA tuner, a neighbour may have a signal leakage problem.

Satellite and OTA into the same TVs or receivers are not a problem.

Rogers Signal Leakage Audit

I got a letter the other day that said I had Signal Leakage from my Rogers digital and had to call to book an appoinment from some company name Trinity, free of charge.

The person said the reason was caused was by the black wire, which my mom didn't say anything about cause it was from an illegal satellite we had. Of course it's not connected anymore but the dish is still up. Anyways supposedly it's responsible all of the sudden for the 'signal leakage'.

They said to call Rogers and get an appointment to clean up the cables. im apprehensive of making an appointment, as my past hacking days may find me in trouble. I noticed today 3 channels all of the sudden arent working[15,16,17] just black screen.

what do you recommend?
