Customer reviewsNice little bi-directional digital TV amp
When the latest Cable TV Act became law in 1994, I installed a complete cable distribution system in my home that fed cable to every room. We used a whole-house amplifier and fed an 8-way splitter. It was great until the DTV conversion. Our cable supplier eventually dropped all analog TV service. Only TVs with either a set-top box, a digital transport adapter or a QAM tuner to receive baseband TV channels would work. I had to abandon the old analog whole-house amp and move to a digital amp that had a backchannel return path for communication with the set-top box and with the DTAs. Those are two-way devices and must be validated by and communicate with the cable company s servers . I chose this little guy and it works nicely. I also swapped the original 8-way splitter for a low loss 8-way splitter combiner to support two-way communications .
