I had two tv's hooked up to a splitter coming from an attic antenna. Got 17 perfect channels, when i hooked up this amplifier i only get 3. So it's either faulty or i don't no what amplify means. Either way i would NOT recomend.

A longer Signal Lead would enable installation away from the Electronic Device.

Before installing this amp I was receiving about 52 local channels. Using it I am now receiving 70 local channels and was able to add 2 additional tv's for a total of 4. Installing this amp in the correct fashion will boost your signal greatly, as long as your service line from your antenna is within 100 ft. I was a cable tv supervisor for years and this amp has the same signal boost as an amp I'd install from the truck.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lowrider130 Caused more problems than it solved.
I was having some issues with my cable on one TV and the company checked our signal strength and said I could probably benefit from a signal booster/amplifier. This was the only one available at the store, so I picked it up and installed it that night. I replaced the cable company splitter with this so the entire house could benefit.
The first thing I noticed was that the cable modem wouldn't reconnect to the internet. Unsure what the issue was, I put the splitter before this just to get a 'clean' signal to the modem. That fixed the internet, but the signal was now bad on all my TVs, not just the one that originally had the problem.
The cable company sent someone out, who replaced this amplifier with their own and the problem was solved. The cable guy also had to split the internet before their booster and explained a couple things to me.
1.) A signal booster/amplifier can send too strong of a signal for the cable modem and cause it to not function properly.
2.) Some TVs (I had a non-digital CRT in one room) can cause feedback, so he put a filter on that line to be safe.
I also noticed the range on this booster is up to 900Mhz, but the splitters I have go up to 2.4Ghz. I'm not sure if that was part of the problem since the issues we were having were in the high channel section (i.e. 1100+), but it's possible this unit can still help people with an antennae.

I was concerned when I did not see the level of amplification on the outside of the package. The instructions list it as only 4.5 db. I noticed absolutely no benefit of having this "amplifier" installed. The one channel I did not get before I still did not get after this thing was installed. And the other 36 channels I did get without the "amplifier" I still got... so no benefit all all from this thing.

Simply didn't work...wouldn't pass a signal. Had excellent Directv feed from the dish...disconnected the feed and inserted the antenna output into this amplifier...connected the line to the TV and had nothing thru any of the four outputs...zero...powered or unpowered. Obviously a bad unit.

Improved the quality of the signal in remote locations and eliminate junctions that adversely affected the signal.

upgraded coaxial and fittings from HD and picked up a few extra channels. Installed amp less than 2 feet from antenna and what a difference. Now faced with 80 plus channels and the need to edit or learn several new languages. This is an outdoor antenna installed in attic. Rural area 50 miles from Houston
