Manufacturer's Description Designed to distribute the signals from a digital satellite receiver and FM/DAB aerial to up to 6 TVs/Hi-Fi tuner The new range of SLx earial amplifiers have an integrated digital bypass to make them fully compatible with the infra -red remote control extenders used to control digital satellite boxe's.Without the bypass the signal from the infra -red remote control extenders is blocked by conventional aerial amplifiers and boosters. Integrated Digital Bypass - Ready for use with remote control and extenders for digital satellite receivers Improved short circuit protection - If a short circuit occurs on one port it will not shut down the whole amplifier and will continue to operate other ports Improved design - More durable casing with new silver gummetal finish and stylisg blue LED indicator illuminated when active Double insulation and safety certificated to the latest BS standards and CE marked Class - leading noise figure of 4dB or less ensuring minimal interference 6dB signal amplification on all models Product Description This 6-way signal amplifier amplifies the signal of VHF and UHF receiver, allowing you to increase the signal of a television receiver and a radio receiver to stream it to 6 distributed devices throughout your home (such as various televisions or a hi-pass amplifier). The device is suitable for wall mounting.

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

What I want to know is, what should I use the 6th output for :)
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.Read more ›
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.

excellent item easy to install excellent reception highly recommendPublished 6 months ago by Winkle
Works well and very good value for money.
A couple of things though: i) IF the device is likely to be installed in the loft, you may not have a 3-pin mains socket. Read more
works fine but although it,s 4g ready it doesn't block any phone interference.Published 18 months ago by Ian
