Looks like our cable vendor finally swapped over to digital. Now we have some issues. We have a campus environment where we have split the signal to different buildings via SM fiber optic converters. The signal and all the channels work at the output of the fiber converters. In a few locations we have ran into what seems to be cable length issues, where after a certain footage we lose the signal. We have gone through and removed/replaced a couple of the older splitters which has cleared up a few issues. While the opportunity is at hand we would like to go through and clean up the years of hack and splice. I would prefer to install distribution amps at all the Point Of Entry locations where the fiber converters are located. My questions are : 1) What is a good /reliable distribution amp these days that will pass the digital signal. 2) What MHz band would it need to cover ? 3) What is a general max length for RG-6 before signal degradation ? Thinking inline amps for the few longer runs...
Thanks in advance for any assistance
