does sky box amplify terrestrial aerial??
My tv upstairs doesn't have its own aerial but receives freeview because my sky box downstairs has a normal aerial into in then has an rf feed to my upstairs tv. I no longer have sky so removed the sky box and joined the aerial and the rf cable with a connector however the picture upstairs now breaks up. I'm wondering if the sky box used to amplify the signal as the cables are very long. Or could it just be the connector, although I have tried 2 different ones! Thanks in advance
