Last Saturday a new customer called us for a cord cutting rescue. He cut the cord himself about a year ago but his indoor antennas were not working properly. The signal would cut out every time someone walked in front of the TV. Needless to say, his Super Bowl plans for the following day were in jeopardy. StreamWise Solutions, formerly freeTVee, came to the rescue.
Our anxious customer may have figured all of this out himself. His wood shop and tool collection made me green with envy and he had set up several indoor antennas by himself. Unfortunately for him the wiring was mess and his knees were not what they used to be. We provide cord cutting rescue to customer like him every day.
Over the years the cable companies and satellite companies must have installed a mile of coaxial wiring and more splitters than I could count. For the amateur DIY-er, even an amateur as experienced as he, this would have taken weeks to figure out. It also required a lot of time in the crawlspace. Here is a picture of me kneeling in the crawlspace with my headlamp on:
