I'm thinking of getting a TV splitter amp for DTV, but my main worry about this is will it get to hot if its on all the time in the attic? All of my cords and 4 way splitter is up in the attic. I would like to pull in LDTV at a better signal.
Are you running RG-59, RG-6U, or RG-6 Quad Cable? I would run all the coax with RG-6 Quad up to the antenna. Keep in mind when you split the signal you lose a great amount even with an amp. I tried to place my antenna in the closet but made reception worse. So I ended up with all my TV's hooked up to an HD Antenna. Could get 7-1 in one run, but 18-1 forget about it and vise versa for the other rooms using RG-6 U Coax. In the living room I have RG-6 but the built in cable jacks in the bedroom are RG-59. It's an apartment so I can't just tear down the wall and start dropping cable feed. In order to do so, I would have to use my drywall saw and cut a big hole into the ceiling. I thought about doing it, but the cost of repairing it and the time it would take to fix it right would be more than buying antenna's for each TV set.
And since I live down a steep hill, it probally would'nt make much difference.
