Video Switchbox / Converter Box Hookup - To boost or not to boost?
Ok, so it's time to reveal my ignorance of "all things electrical".
I read that the TV converter box must be placed downstream in the "out to tv" coax line. Placing it on the "antenna in" coax would fry the converter as soon as the "on / signal boost" switch is pressed. That tip saved me destroying my converter box as I had originally planned to place the converter on the "antenna in" side.
So, it will be placed on the "out to tv" side of things. Now my question is this. Can you use the amplified signal with this configuration? Or will any use of the "on / signal boost" amplifier blow the converter box when it is placed "downstream" from the switch box.
I'm sure this is elementary to most of you, but it is a mystery to me. All help is much appreciated.
