I'm getting rid of my Bell dish very soon. Have new antenna up and running and getting about 22 channels but some of the Buffalo channels (ABC, PBS, FOX, and CBS) are low signal.

I have a Dish Power Inserter which I tried on the line and it seemed to increase signal strength. My question is will putting 12V on the line burn out the baluns on the antennas?
