How much does Video Modulator quality vary?

I have an inexpensive modulator that I use to inject video onto channel

94, which is then distributed throughout the house. I paid about $40 for this at Radio Shack on closeout- I notice that they don't carry the model any more.

The picture is reasonably good, but not as sharp as regular analog cable, and not nearly as sharp as s-video straight to the TV. I know you give something up by modulating the signal, but shouldn't it look as good as the rest of the cable channels?

Should I get a measureably better picture if I step up to a higher quality modulator?

Thanks for your input.

PS- The device I have looks just like this one, rebranded as radio shack

I've usually found it's the quality of the souce more than the modulator.
