Just got my price increase. I need to reduce some cost. I currently have a 4700 feeding 3 sd tvs in other rooms up to 75 feet away. There is an amplifier on the cable run. I am using a 622 in single mode. So I thought I could get rid of the 4700 and save $7.
I disconnected the 4700 rf out and connected it to my 622 tv2 out. I reset the 3 sd tvs to the uhf channel for tv2 cable out. No matter what I do with setting the amplifier gain control , I get a snowy picture at all 3 sd tvs. When I reconnect to the 4700 and go back to channel 3 on all the sd tvs, the picture becomes sharp again. What I did not try is going over the air. I would have to get 3 uhf antennas for the 3 sd tvs. Anybody have any suggestions.

First thing I would try is to bypass the amp and go direct to a/the tv's. Also a lower uhf channel(s) for tv2 out may work better.

also go into the modulator menu and make sure it is set to home distribution, not direct connect.
