FAQ - Signal Leakage Between CATV and OTA

15680 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.

Would you care to elaborate Stampeder? I have a few friends who have purchased new TV's with integrated ATSC tuners, who also use analog cable (too cheap to spring for HD terminals). What precautions should one take? TIA!
