    Looks like most channels are in the 40's. SNR is about 29 or 30. They all work, but occasional are lost or get pixelated. I have a rather poor cable set up with a lot of splitters.

    Should I spring for a signal booster/amplifier? Looking at a four port Motorola that seems to get good reviews I can put it in a outside box and energize it through an unused cable connection on the inside of the house.

    Splitters will reduce the signal strength with each one down the line. Try to reduce to as few splitters as possible without losing service to other devices on the same line. Try 4-way splitters as well.

    Tivo Premiere. Similar low strength on all channels.

    I've eliminated as many splitters as I can. The remainder are outside of the house, from the line drop to where they enter the house.

    because your coaxial cable's too old cause too low strength... need replace new one
