My mythtv system and my cable modem are in the same room directly two
flights above the cable service where the amp is.

I put the amp in. Its a PDI 4 way cable modem splitter with a +7db
gain on all ports and the reverse signal bypass.

The real problem here is because I bought my own modem my cable
company (Adelphia) was not providing any real help. Now they are
Comcast so maybe it may be better.
