If you are having cable TV picture problems this may be the product for you. This product will improve your cable TV picture and reduce pixilation, snow, and audio drop-outs that are caused by a weak signal level. It is compatible with all cable TV systems and services. You may or may not notice a difference in cable modem speed when using the amplifier. A number of factors influence cable modem speed, and there is no guarantee a booster will improve modem performance. If you are boosting an HDTV antenna signal, you should get the best HD antenna you can afford BEFORE using a booster. This signal amplifier IS NOT a substitute for a good antenna. If you are using an indoor antenna or are having HD reception problems with just a single TV attached to your outdoor antenna, this product will likely not improve your reception. It is NOT compatible with satellite TV, and will actually block satellite reception – so do not order it if you have satellite TV.
- Provides 8 amplified output ports plus a modem bypass port. The modem bypass port is not required to be used, so the amplifier can be used for standard OTA antenna connections also. This is item is an alternative to the PCT-MA2-8P.
- Increases signal by +2dB on each port boost! Each port on the amplifier will be boosted by 2dB above the signal on the input. This allows you to connect longer cable runs and keep the signal strong.
- Will reduce cable pixilation and graininess due to low signal levels. Typical low signal problems cause audio dropouts and pixilation. Boosting the signal before splitting (as this product does) often fixes signal issues.
- Provides uninterrupted service at all times for critical applications connected to the BYPASS port, such as cable telephony, that require high reliability.
