Not sure what to do. I live in zip 91104 and I am like 5 miles from all the standard network station antennas. I have clear view of all the antennas on the nearby mountain. My house is two story and the antenna is in the attic. The antenna is a GE attic mount 33692. I have great reception on two TVs, but I am getting major pixelation on the living room tv which is fed by a TiVo Roamio OTA box. The pixelation seems to be mostly on NBC. Often it gets so bad that we can’t watch it or hear it. Tried an antenna amp and it was much, much worse. I have quad shield RG6 thru the house except for a 25 foot piece of RG59 run to the antenna. I think my signal may be too strong? I’m not sure if there are any cell towers nearby. One other thing, the plywood sheathing on the roof has a foil coating on the inside.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated- you know the saying “happy wife, happy life” !!
Thanks
