When I turn the cable box on, it searches for data for about 5-15 minutes and then says TV OFF AIR and it won't do anything. Without the cable box, I connect the rg6 cable into the tv and I get all basic cable channels and only a few are snowy or distorted. I'm trying to figure out what kind of signal amplifier to get and where to connect it. Would I connect it from the outside jack on my house or would I connect it where the cable comes in at the building I'm running it to?
