Yes, splitters degrade the signal strength, and they cause signal quality issues where there are multiple unterminated ends, as is the case when you've got nothing plugged into lots of wall outlets around the house.

I'd recommend bypassing the splitter initially, connecting the one aerial cable to just the one relevant wall outlet using a male/male f connector joiner, eg:

Also, without meaning to appear rude, I'd suggest rechecking the connection to your new aerial, to ensure that you have no outside shield braiding touching the inner solid core piece.  That's absolutely critical to the whole thing, as a short like this anywhere along the run/system will pull everything down.

Bypass the splitter.
Check for bad joints or shorts. Sounds like you may have a short or open circuit there somewhere.
If that fails try running another temp cable direct from the antenna to the TV (through an open window) to see if there is sufficient signal to sart with (maybe try this first?).

And confirm your aerial is orientated with the correct vertical or horizontal direction alignment.

Others here will advise for your location, or check what several neighbours are doing with theirs!

I don't understand what you are saying or asking. If you want a response, or to get a point across, you will need to re-post something a bit more comprehensible - words and sentences would help.

Post something intelligible if you want help.
Proper sentences, punctuation, correct spelling and good grammar would be a start.

Edit. And we somehow seem to have got into a totally different thread.?
