After replacing the cable run to the problem DTA with new cable, I was now able to activate the DTA but the signal was still degraded to the point that several of the channels were unusable. Internet search indicated that the problem I experienced is not uncommon and suggested an amplifier.
Of course, Comcast will send a tech out to fix, but it is at homeowner's expense. I was not willing to pay them to fix a problem they created.
Installed amplifier--quick and easy. There was a comprehensive installation sheet, but it was not really necessary since amp inputs and outputs are well marked. Before installation, signal strength at the DTA input was about 15db with a S/N ratio of about 25. After installing the amplifier, the signal level is 1.5db and the S/N ratio is 37. Works great and I didn't have to pay Comcast to fix the problem. My only complaint is that I had to do it in the first place. My cable service wasn't broken before they implemented their transition. After, I have lost service to two TVs (unless I want to pay them extra for additional DTAs), I have a rat's nest of wires behind each of the TVs where I installed DTAs, and there is no particular improvement in service (unless you count several additional channels which are completely worthless.)
But this isn't about Comcast--it's about the amplifier.
Five+ stars. Solidly built, as you'd expect from Motorola.
If you're having problems after Comcast "improved" your service, I highly recommend you take a look at this solution.
In short, once I installed this amp I've got 29dB SNR to go up to 40-41dB. All channels work great now.
The amp works great. I just wonder how long it would last. I hope "long enough" to justify the price.
