I was over at a relative's house trying to help her with a cable problem. the cable company changed over to digital and the signal was too weak for the digital converters.
I opened the service box to the house and disconnected the unused lines from the splitter and capped the unused ports.
I'm assuming that the two tall fittings in the center are locking signal caps that the cable company or the builder installed because I couldn't remove them. I was just wondering if that was correct.
anyway removing and capping the unused ports seemed to help. if I need to do more the next step would be to change to a newer digital splitter or an amplified splitter.
any other ideas before I have to call the cable company?
edit: I also went around and tightened all the connectors inside the house.
