Way-to-go! Just in time for tonight & tomorrow.

Wonder what happened that you didn't need an amp before this? Something changed. :?

I think it is the heat outside & old cable on the outside of my place. They said I was at -10 coming into the wall, which was the limit before losing reception (HD channels 1st) & when my cable split for the TV & Internet it went from -10 to -13 (then I started losing my channels) With the Amp they installed I am now at +8 so I am good to go!!!!

When the weather was cooler I didnt have any problems with signal strength.

Re: Not a Happy Camper

Yup, temperature, humidity, signal splitters and corroding coax connectors can all cause the overall signal strength to slowly degrade.

But, at least you're all fixed up and good to go! :D :D

Re: Not a Happy Camper

I have Comcast for internet and phone.... and things have been groovy for awhile.... except.... enter JULY and 100+ degree weather.... and all of a sudden, the internet connection is dropping like soldiers at Gettysburg!

So I called Comcast .... and per the "warm unit" answering the tech phone.... says outside temps do NOT make a difference. I don't believe that tho. I think HH is right, that over time, heat DOES degrade some components.

Anyways, glad that you're OK and ready to go now Schmoopy. :-) We'd all be sooooo lost without you in chat, during a race. :-) We need "that voo doo, that you do... so well!" :-)
Smoke 'em if ya got 'em!

Sh*t happens... but don't worry, it usually happens to me.

well talk to their Techs, they will tell you different. The guy I talked to on the phone was an idiot. heat might not effect brand new cable & fittings, but how many homes have brand new wire ran. (not many) The phone people dont know crap, they are reading from a book for troubleshooting. My Tech said yeah that could be, when I 1st told him what it might be.

Re: Not a Happy Camper

Glad you're back online Schmoop. I am going to try to get in the chat room during the race but am staying in a motel with WIFI. Have a ton of work so that will have to come first but if it will let me in, I would love to say Hey to you all this week. I have good feelings about this race. (I just knocked on wood just in case.) :-)

Smokie, hope you'll be in the chat room too during the race. Need to update you on my whereabouts! LOL.
Where there's Smoke, there's fire!
