- Kernersville, NC -
Works great as a distribution splitter/amplifier. I used an attic mounted Clearstream 2V (directional UHF - all the channels in the area broadcast in the UHF range) and an antenna pre-amp to the CM3418 (unpowered) and it wasn't performing well. I switched to using the CM3418 for both the distribution and the amplifier and removed the pre-amp after discovering I was getting good signal with the antenna directly connected to a single TV. Upped the number of channels I received from 24 (marginally on a few) to 30 (I also shortened my runs going out from the CM3418 by centrally locating the unit to the TVs). Signal/Noise Ratio is now excellent on almost all channels. The only one not very good is off center but still receiving it from 22 miles away and it is at a 90 degree from the main N/S direction where most of the channels originate. I bought another CM3418 years ago in the Des Moines area and had good success with it as well.

This is a very robustly constructed product. It has very low self noise and seems to be a first rate product.Great for splitting the output from an antenna up to eight ways plus add some gain without degrading the signal.
The Distribution Amp works great!

This distribution amp is used near a patch panel to send a source cable signal to several rooms at once with perfect performance at each location.
It Works!

I use this distribution amplifier to distribute DTV signals from my rooftop DB8 antenna and CM7778 pre-amp. Signal is delivered flawlessly to multiple TVs and PCs with tuner cards.

Been two years now still works great
Great Product
- Myrtle Beach, rtle Beach S -
Using this amplifier along with DB=8 antenna for OTA HD reception installed now for about one year.This amp distributes to every room in the house pre-wired for cable and does a great job. I am very pleased. Only down side for some users is requirement for access to 110v AC outlet for power near the amp. Next will be a rotor to turn the antenna for more channels.
so far so good

so far so good once I had to unplug because signal was breaking up since then working ok. I am using it with 2 antenna setup and combiner which is tough to keep a good signal to begin with. (2 UHF VHF Antennas facing different locations) terminators for unused outputs were not included
Almost perfect
- Tulsa, -
An excellent job of passing through video signals. Nice to be able to feed 8 HD signals. Had a little trouble with return path voltage so had to do an upstream split for the cable modem and bypass the splitter.
This a great Amplifies Does the job

Used to distribute cable signal to eight tvs in a 5000 sq ft hall
Worked fine within warranty period
- Burlington, ington WI -
Installed CM-3418 with all new OTA Channel-Master equipment worked fine for 13 months then by-pass light came on. No continuity from any of the 8 supply inputs/output ports. Called CM no longer covered by warranty need to replace failed distribution amp! I suggest looking at a different product
