I installed an ota antenna to pick up local digital channels and want to feed a 622 and a 722. If I run direct to either of the receivers I pick up 14 channels on each. If I use a splitter I only pick up 2. The splitter says from 5-800mhz. Do I need something with a higher frequency or need to get a preamp splitter? I am running about 25' feet of cable to the splitter and another 25' from the splitter to the receivers. The cable is 3ghz tested.

Thanks for any info anyone has.

Sounds like you need either a preamp (amp at antenna, powersupply before the splitter) or a small distribution amp in place of the splitter.
You CAN put antennas on your owned and/or controlled property...
