Ever since my cable company installed digital cable in my house I have had picture problems. The analog pictures were grainy and half of the digital pictures didn't come in. They just said they would arrive shortly but never did. Numerous calls to the cable company failed to come up with a permanent fix. So I decided to take matters in my own hands. Other boosters made things worse. When I saw that this one worked with digital as well as analog I decided to give it a try. I first hooked it up from the cable box to the vcr and got no improvement. So I tried hooking it up where the signal first came in before the cable reciever and it worked beautifully. Analog pictures are clearer than ever and all the digital pictures come in. No more "Please Wait" screens. I am mad that my stupid cable company refused to do this but I am thrilled to finally have what I pay for! Great product!

As for the people writing the other reviews on this product, you should not speak if you know nothing about Broadband. First of all, this booster will NOT increase your docsis cable modem speeds, no matter what you hear. This amplifier, installed correctly (at the entry point of your home) will boost your forward signal by +15db (allowing return signals to pass). Most cable modem operating level ranges are +15 to -15, so if your within that range on your cable modems operating frequency (for example 705mhz) there is no need for a booster. If you are on the treshhold of signal, like -17db, then this amp will be beneficial to you. Your GUI on your cable modem will give you this reading ([...] for example). As for your cable reception, and amplifier can be helpful if you have multiple TV's, to make up for the loss that your splitters create. But again, this amp MUST be installed @ your cables entry point to your home. If you have a bad connection though, you will only amplify noise. So your outside drop connection from the pole must be good for an amp to work properly. In conclusion, your modem downloads a config file from your ISP which tells that modem what speeds to run at, and your ISP's router capacities determine what kind of speeds you get. So this amplifier will NOT boost speeds :-)

Prior to purchasing the Motorola amp, I purchased and installed the TERK AMP-15, which worked very well (until the cable company did a disconnect recently and apparently short-circuited the input). Upon reconnecting my cable service, the cable-tv tech noted that my TERK AMP-15 was no longer working. Rather than just order another TERK, I decided to check the alternatives. Checking the specs, I noticed the Motorola Signal Booster is a similar product, however the specs are much better (2.5 dB max Noise Figure vs. 3.5 dB max for the TERK) and the Motorola uses the most advanced technology available (Gallium Arsenide). Also, the Motorola amp includes a 6kV surge resistant design (meets the 6kV IEEE C62.41-1991 and 1 kV Combination Wave surge for all ports). I did not find surge protection mentioned in the TERK spec. Another difference is the Motorola provides a slightly wider bandwidth (52-1000 MHz) and operates at lower dc voltage (12VDC). These differences indicate a highly refined circuit design, so I expect a much more durable, worry-free product. Nice going Motorola!

We have cable TV and a couple splitters. The picture on all TVs was sometimes very good and sometimes not - very inconsistent. The cable company said that the signal to my house was "acceptable". So I bought the Motorola booster and put it inline and the picture immediately improved to a great consistent picture on most TV's.

However my cable internet would not work with the booster. I had to put a two way splitter [very important to use a two way splitter only to minimize loss] at the cable TV source with one tap going to the cable modem [old RCA brand] and the other to the the Mororola booster. The booster then went to to a splitter. I also had a splitter connected to the first splitter after the Motorola booster. My signal was still not great on the splitter farthest down the line. What I then did is to junk my splitters and used quality splitters instead which made the difference to all TVs having a great picture. Obviously all splitters are not equal. I now only use Regal brand splitters. It is also important to minimize the use of spitters and to cap off unused ports with a terminal cap. There will be a signal loss for each port of a splitter whether all the ports are being used or not. So don't use a four port splitter if you only need to have two or three ports available unless you have definite plans to use extra ports soon.

Bottom line is that I am very happy with the Motorola booster. All TVs now have a great picture on all channels including our Sony 60 inch wide screen.
