On Demand most likely requires use of a return channel, which your amplifier
may be blocking. If you can find an amplifier compatible with cable modems,
you likely will have found one that will work for you. The splitter is most
likely not the problem -- the frequency range you quoted is adequate for
cable modems and digital cable on most systems.
