Hi all ,

I was hoping some of you AV guys could help me out....I believe my TV splitter box is bad ?? When on Air antenna my down stairs TV is fine...my TV in the bedroom gets ZERO channels.. i tried swapping around the wires and was able to get 4 stations up stairs while I was getting 10 or so downstairs.. There is a JUMBLE of wires behind there and none of them are marked??And on the 2nd TV side of the box , there are 2 different wires coming off both with splitters going to 2 more each HELP !!!

never on air... I bypass the box completly and all is good...I believe either a wire is crossed,,, the box is bad,,, or the wire is bad running from box to TV ?..

Best way to tell whether its the box or the installed coax is to run a separate coax from the box directly to the BR TV.

***UPDATE***

on the advise from Shortlance over on KZOwners forum , i picked up 2 new digital splitters and replaced the 2 factory installed splitters.. All is good !! Fired up the TV's and had 45+ digital stations from the antenna on both TV's...Joe
