I am trying to split the signal OUT of my Samsung T160 High Def Receiver. For some reason, the signal is only clear on 1 of 2 tv's.

On the 2nd tv, I can see the picture but it's really snowy. On the 1st tv, the picture is crystal clear.

I am using RF connections on both tv's.

The only possible anomaly that I can think of is on the 2nd tv, I used RG59 cable. That's also what I used from the receiver to the splitter, though.

I'm stumped. Any ideas?

I appreciate any help.

Swap the legs on the splitters, swap the cabling with RG-6, try an amplifier, etc...
