TV antenna splitter
There was a time a few seasons ago that I thought my TV antenna just didn't work. No signal. I then realized that there is a splitter than allows it to be the antenna for the FM radio as well. To send a signal to the TV, the FM radios have to be off. So I tried it and got a few stations. Amazing what a little knowledge with do. We don't watch much TV.
However, the signal is wildly unreliable and its either all in or all out, so I think its the splitter. I understand that digital TV is more in or out, but its clear that I am getting no signal from any channel or I'm getting a few channels.
How do these things work and do they go bad? I did find it tucked behind the nav station and could just replace it. It has 12v power going to it as well. I'm just not sure how to diagnose the problem.
