I want to split my satellite into three devices one my sky  and two free view possibly three. I Currently am doing this already but it is not nice and if I turn one of the freeview devices off I lose signal to the other boxes. I really just need to know if I need a spliter with power bypass to all outputs or to just single output. Or is there a better way of doing it?

Thanks

You need a all port diode power pass splitter so that any or all boxes can power the dish. The diodes stop the power from going back to the other boxes and messing things up.

I got mine from J A Russells, it was a stock item but I cannot recall the price unfortunatly. Just check that it is diode because there are many which are not and I found that lead to the receivers not powering up again till the sat input was disconnected on several occasions.
