Do cable boxes receive better signal than QAM tuners?

Recommended Posts


I have my cable split three ways in my house. Two of them are hooked up to a digital cable box and one is hooked up to my TV via the QAM tuner. When watching the digital cable boxes, everything is fine. But when watching the cable via the QAM tuner, there is frequent picture breakup and when I check the menu, the signal is low. But this is strange because my other two cable boxes seem to receive the signal just fine.

So, do cable boxes do a better job at receiving signal than QAM tuners?
