This review is from: Philex 27813HS 4-Way TV Signal Booster (Accessory)
Our TV picture suddenly kept breaking up and occasionally disappeared altogether, and nothing seemed to solve the problem - I tried new coaxial leads, changed plugs, moved wires, and the picture would seem fine and then for no reason would break up...usually at a key moment in a film or drama..."And the murderer is..."
This went on for months and so I recently purchased one of these signal boosters, and we now have a beautifully clear picture on all channels and no picture break up. Takes seconds to install and has made such a difference.
To those who give it a low rating and say that it makes no difference to their picture, you do have to re-tune the TV once it has been installed. And your DVD recorder too. Just attaching the signal booster is not really effective, you have to get the TV to search for channels once the signal booster has been installed. It should say this on the instructions, but doesn't. We had 118 digital channels before installing this, but when I re-tuned and our TV downloaded the channels, it found 148...
