Is the following scenario indicative of a broken amplifier, or an amplifier that just doesn't have enough <something> or something else:
I started to write this out but it got too confusing with different TV's - we have 3 in total. So lets reference TV-A and TV-B in the story :)
I noticed that the reception on TV-A was horrible on most of the channels (some channels are fine) - running with DVB-T. When watching on another TV (TV-B), the reception is fine.
The cable on TV-B has the power source for the masthead amp running through it. So I unplugged the amplifiers power source and moved it to TV-A's socket (I know I was able to do this as the person installed one that didn't need the amp to be located on a specific outlet). Plugged it all in, and TV-A is now working fine.
I go back to the TV-B and plug in the aerial (which now has no amplifier power attached), and it works fine. Returning to TV-A I find this is now no longer working :\
So I think this is a bit weird. So I power off the amplifier power supply, remove the other TV-B's aerial cable from the wall plate and sit down to have something to eat and think about it a bit. Then after about 30 min I turned the power back on to the amplifier power supply (still in TV-A's wall plate), and TV-A is back to working fine.
So does this indicate that the amplifiers power supply can't supply enough signal strength to be split over 3 (ie the total number of plugged in TV's in the house) wall plates? Any thoughts on how I could resolve this? Its not that much of a big deal tbh because with TV-B it's used primarily for movies, gaming, and we can stream from our main DVB-T receiver to it anyhow, but it just makes me wonder
