Ideally, the preamp unit will be located at the antenna (outside) and power insertion block would be located between the splitter and antenna (inside, protected from the weather).

It's possible to make things work with the power insertion block between the splitter and TV, but the splitter must be able to pass power (which yours is advertised to do)... But, it must not pass power to the second TV... that may short the power supply which could produce the symptoms you're reporting.

15' from the antenna to the preamp is a bit longer than ideal but not enough to cause the symptoms you've described.

Don't rule out the possibility of a bad cable or connector.
