New TV in but some channels snowy
We are now the proud parents of a 70" Sony KDS-XBR2 and Onkyo receiver, Definitive speakers, HD tuner/DVR. All I can say is "WOW!" However, the TV's reception of the lower channels (from "regular" cable plan) is terrible. The digital ones are okay (and of course, the HD ones are terrific).....but why the snow/poor reception on the lower cable channels? We do have the cable split after it gets into the house, but I put a cable amplifier on the line leading to the HDTV--still not any better. I can't give it the "best" line or my broadband connection is degraded such that it's about unusable. Would 2 cable amps be better--one before the splitter and then one after the splitter (on the line leading to the HDTV)?
The Cable Guy is coming out this week--hopefully he'll have some idea for us short of running a totally new line.
