Could you explain where each of the four outlets are located?

1. Bedroom (direct from the Antenna power boost outlet)
2. Living room (main TV in street side wall)
3. Outside Kitchen (in ceiling)
4. ??????? (Outdoor sidewall to left of entry door)

Since the Living room, Outdoor Kitchen and Outside sidewall all feed off of the connection at the power boost there must be a splitter. The Bedroom one has always had the best picture it has Never really been as clear as when hooked directly to the Park Cable connection. The others are worse. I have removed and tightened each of these. Ends feel and appear to be crimped well but I will replace if the splitter proves to be ok.

When in a metropolitan area you should have crystal clear HD pictures on your TVs from the roof antenna. If not, they you can work on the system without the need for a cable hookup.

If the bedroom TV does not have a good cable picture, I would replace the ends on that run for the docking station to the power supply first. Chris

I would think any hidden splitters would be after the antenna signal booster switch, wouldn't they? If you have good, clear picture while using antenna it would seem that the park cable to the booster would be the culprit. Shouldn't be any splitters on that length of cable. If this is true then the ends on that park cable might need replacing as others mentioned.
