lost bedroom reception after hooking up tivo

New to Ota and most recently tivo. Ive had my hd antenna for 2 months with a splitter running signal to my living room and 2 bedrooms. Everything has been great in all rooms until i hooked up my new roamio in my living room just last week. The tivo works great, signal is great in my livingroom and master bedroom however now my guest bedroom has scrambled channels that keep coming and going which ive never had problems until i added a tivo to my livingroom. With my splitter going to 3 rooms and 4 turners in my tivo is that spreading my signal too much ? Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!!

Are you just using 3 ports from a passive (unpowered) 4-port splitter? It's not easy to give advice if you don't give us all the info we need. However, passive 4-way splitters cut the signal down a LOT, and if you don't have much signal margin in the first place, it can go below threshold. You might be able to install a POWERED splitter in its place.

I use this one, and it works well: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o01_s00
