Thanks teleview! I ran new coax to the DB4e when I installed it. No jumpers, nothing... just straight to the TV. The old attic setup used the old coax. Mounting it on the roof did increase the run of the cable a good 25'+ from where it was in the attic tho.

The signals are strong, just not quite the 90%/85% I was getting on 49/WDRB with the attic setup... with distribution amp installed. I'd rather leave the amp out of the mix anyway.

I ordered the pre-amp yesterday. I think that will fix a lot of these problems. With only 12db gain, I think it'll be a solid improvement over the 24db low quality distribution amp that was placed 25' down the line.
