Dual OTA Adapter Filter

Just attached a Dual OTA Adapter and I am getting 30 plus over the air channels! With that said, the TV seems to be getting LTE interference now. Is anyone else having the same issues? Has anyone used a LTE filter on this adapter?

 

Thank You

From what I read I thought LTE interference was extremely rare.

What symptoms are you getting that point to it?

The screen will pixelated and then just freeze. I then have to reset the hopper to get it back to normal. Before long though, the screen will freeze again. My house is about a 100 yards away from a cell tower.

Does the LTE signals affect anything other than the adapter (TV running right off antenna?)

 

I've read about them but never used one.  Only advice I have is to try buying one somewhere you can return it if it does not work for you. 

 

I noticed they have Channel Master ones on Ebay for $25 showing 30 day returns.  Also for anything you purchase using paypal that you return paypal will pay (up to ~$30?) return shipping.

 

Let us know how you make out with this issue.

I am using an inline LTE filter on my OTA cable from the antenna and it definitely improves the signal to the TV. I have it on the cable BEFORE the antenna amplifier so that the signal to the Dish receiver and the connection directly to the TV are enhanced. I had problems on our new TV with the signal digitizing and freezing when viewed directly from the OTA antenna and the LTE filter has cleared up that ussue. I purchased the Channel Master that was mentioned previously.

I had a Dish Technician come out on Monday moring and install a device on the back of the hopper and the problem have not happen sense. Not sure how to add a photo to this board, but the device is a small rectangular device that was plugged into a USP port in the back of the hopper. It also seems to have improve the speed of the hopper. Thanks for all the help!
