I was wondering if anyone knew if there was an amplifier that can be bought to improve the ota and satellite signal with a simple indoor installation.
Thanks in advance

There's a little powered Radio Shack inline amp for OTA signals. I used it on my silver sensor, and it definately improved my signal strength.

Same here, the RatShack unit worked out nicely.

will this radio shack amplifier help even when both ota and satellite signals are going through a diplexer?

It could... but I'd put it after the diplexor splits the line back out again.

the diplexer doesnt split until it reaches the box. so should i bother trying to incease the signals. the problem is im missing one ota channel. the signal on the channel is 18 so i was hoping an amplifier could increase it enough to make it viewable. any thoughts?

well the antenna is pointed in the complete wrong direction and an installer is coming to fix that problem. anyway i went to radio shack and tried it and the picture now comes in put its very pixalated and unwatchable. oh well, at least i know i can get the channel once they fix they antenna.
