tv connection

Postby rarbay » Sat Feb 07, 2009 11:08 am

Hi, Can I run another tv ariel from the existing mast ariel to my bedroom, using the same connection on the ariel that connects to my tv in the lounge? Or can you buy another mast connection for the cable? Thanks Dave

Simply Build It

You can put a simple "Y" splitter in the cable to supply the second telly, but the signal strength will be halved and consequently unless the signal is exceptionally strong, neither tv may work properly.

You can buy amplifier splitters that fit in the loft and can operate 2,3 or 4 tv's from the one aerial.

Check Screwfix for Tv amplifiers and distribution.
