TV Aerial Splitter

7
Found 1st Dec 2009
I'be just moved into a new flat which has aerial points on the walls in the bedrooms so naturally I've put my TV on the wall.

Now in order to get the point working I have to split the main TV point in the living room and put one cable into the point next to it and one into the TV in the living room - kinda creating a loop.

Now was wondering if these TV splitters are any good or if they lose signal - granted there only like £2 but would like to know if its worth getting one or getting a signal booster.

Sorry if Ive blown your mind n you dont understand but there should be some AV experts here

  1. Misc
  2. Aerial
  3. TV

i dunno about anyone else but i brought a cheap one and the signal is terrible on digital although i think they were built for analogue signals...infact it doesn't even work!

of course they loose signal this is why they are called SPLITTERS if you aerial has good signal tho youl hardly notice

if it does you need a splitter with a booster.

You can get a splitter dirt cheap at Wilkos.
like 99p i think.

Splitters are no substitute for a booster (about £8 in argos)

You kinda have to see it for yourself

we have 3 aerial ports in a row - one says TV the next says FM and the third says RETURN

The splitter needs to go into the TV port and an aerial lead needs to go into the RETURN port and the actual tv

as I say, invest in a booster. works great, especially for digital.
