I bought this item to replace a non-mains powered distribution amp located in the attic as I wanted to distribute digital TV and Sky to additional televisions. It is simple to install - just a matter of plugging the UHF input lead in at one end and the co-ax leads (up to 6) running to the individal TV aerial sockets at the other, and then connecting the amp to the mains with the supplied 3 pin plug. I'm getting signal quality of around 90% on each connected TV.

Two points to note: (i) the amp uses push-in type co-ax connectors, NOT the screw-in F type, so make sure you buy the correct ones to use with it; and (ii) as the amp requires mains electricity to work, it needs to be located close to a mains socket as the mains lead is quite short, although I suppose you could use an extension cable.

Excellent product. It does everthing that it says on the packaging. Easy to install and gives an excellent TV picture in all rooms that it is connected to. Is was also considerably cheaper that buying from my local retailer.

If you need TV pictures around the house, this is the amplifier for you.

Installed the amplifier in my roof to help improve my free view signal, prior to installation channel 5 would suffer a lot of breakup but now I get a clear and stutter free image.
The amplifier is however very big and the power lead is just under 1.5 metres long so if you are installing in the loft space you many need an extension lead.

Purchased to replace my ailing thirty year old distribution amp. Even when this was working properly, digital (Freeview) reception was prone to break up or no signals at all on some channels. The SLx 6B gives stable signals on all outlets. So, all in all, an excellent amplifier with the bonus of providing 9 volts from each output to power as many Sky "eyes" as required.

An overall experience of this plus other items in an effort to increase signal strength on a freeview TV.

Brought this for my Nan whose Freeview TV suddenly started to give no picture for up to hours at a time. Sometimes it would give just a blank screen, other times it was mostly green with funny colored pixels that moved around the place.

Decided to try buying this amp believing her signal might be weak. Also brought a 4G filter device in case it was that, along with a 10m extension cable because I knew my Nan's current extension cable is at least 29 years old because she's had it since I was born.

Testing the device at home first I found it worked how I expected it to. Without it my signal was 40%, it jumped up to 65% with it. More TV stations also became available upon rescanning since the TV was able to pick up a signal from further away transmitters which provided the different channels. So it certainly works and does what you would expect it too.

However what I didn't expect was the significant variation on the signal strength I got from each amplified port coming out of the device. Plugging it into the second port the signal strength went down only providing a 55% signal. Plugging into the 3rd it went down another 5% to 50%. Yet when I got to the 5th port it increased from the 65% the first port gave me to about 72%. I only needed it for 1 port so got some sellotape and taped up the other ports and left a blue marker pen arrow on port 5 for my Nan to use. Just seems a little weird the ports didn't all give the same signal strength and for anyone needing those extra ports you may be disappointed.

Provided the signal strength from the aerial is good enough, I think the SL6 provides amplification so that co-ax cables may be taken to several outlets. I have never tried using all six outlets at the same time.

I have had to replace two of these units because the co-ax sockets became detached when pulling a plug out. The sockets don't seem to have anything holding them in but the solder connecting them to the printed circuit. So if one gets stuck, the whole thing breaks.

I suppose they are fairly cheap and you can't expect much. If you do have to pull plugs out, do so very carefully, perhaps twisting a bit first.
