Running on battery, turning on a light will reduce the voltage available. If your battery is getting low, the voltage may fall below that required to power your amp. Are you running a 12 volt TV at the same time or running a 120 Volt AC TV through an inverter?
We are running on shore power. The amplifier is on. It all works fine until you turn the bathroom light switch on, then we loose signal. It must be a power issue though because it is only SOME channels, and only SOME
switches. We have tried adjusting anteanna with no success. A strange event for sure. We are not running any a/c or any appliances at all. In fact most the time there will just be the TV and maybe one light on. And it seems to be mostly one channel, or two, and one or two lights that do it. Not a huge problem, more of an annoyance than anything.
Thanks for responding!!
