I have had similar signal problems with DVB-T tuners. I have 1 of each
variant of the Hauppauge DVB-Nova-TD USB sticks. One required the signal
booster but this meant the other was swamped and received nothing. Ended up
with a similar setup with the multiple output booster then feeding into a
variable attenuator for the other USB stick and all work fine.
Keep up the good work guys! Have been reading this thread with interest for
when we get DVB-T2 in Sussex next year
