Well I ran the extra cable and am receiving signal strengths in the 90s for all local affiliates. I got lucky though. Having 9 foot ceilings in my house, local building code calls for the framers to install cross-studs at 4.5ft that run cross ways between the vertical studs. As you can imagine, this is a nightmare when you have to drop extra wires. I must have been thinking about this when I built my house because on the wall cavities adjacent to the wire drops through the wall my trusty stud finder picked up these cross-studs. However, the one where the wire dropped was straight through. I got lucky :hurah: thanks for the help guys... bottom line here was that I think there is a physical distance limit between the b-band module and the receiver.
