GroundUrMast,

I used to work for a local cable provider and have done tons of connections. All of the connection looked pretty good. Also, I used my cable tester to confirm there was no 'open'.

Another reason I dont think its the cable is with the Phillips antenna connected, I get 8 channels that come in crystal clear.
Someone earlier mentioned trees near the house. I have tall pine trees to the SSE of the house thats the U8000 aims directly at. Maybe I need to find / make a clearing?
Also, I used to install cable TV and cable modems
