Having said that, can anyone estimate approximately how long the coaxial cable run would be between the antenna and each of the rooms? I'm just looking for a ballpark figure. I'm really bad at estimating.

I'm in the process of troubleshooting spotty performance in an otherwise good signal location - hence the reason I'm asking.

Chances are, the number of runs and/ or splitters are causing more signal sag than any length of coax. Unless there are splitters dedicated to satellite use only, that are still in the system.

You will need to post your TVF Report for anybody to recommend antenna/ amplifier solutions.
