I have basic cable, I have it hooked up through a splitter for two different tvs

I find that on my new sony tv it's very snowy, but my older tv it isn't.
is there anyway to fix this?

should i add a signal amplifier? If so where do I add it before or after the splitter?

thanks

Check the connectors being the sony, and the line that goes to it. Also check to make sure the splitter is not backwards :) and if the SOny is a big screen it could just be you notice it more on that tv then the other.

everything is correct, splitter good, connectors good. I would say fuzzy as opposed to snowy!

I've searched the internet and seen signal amplifiers for cable, I thought it would help.

I was just wondering if someone else had it, if so, how did they hook it up?

thanks

I use to have cable TV, I use to have an SD TV, *A tube TV* it use to look much better than my HDTV, for SD channels.
SD pictures usually look much better on an old SD TV than an HDTV, who knows why, buts thats what happens 99% of the times.

It is true I do notice older TV's look better with "basic" cable then newer tvs. They seem to handle the noise image better for some reason, or maybe its just because the screen is not as "clear" you dont notice the bad quality as much?

That is a good assumption too!

Yea crt is better for analog cable because of how the tube face is made, my vizio 32inch still does a good job of handling an analog signal more so than most other lcd's but the samsung 19inch crt does the job.
