Hi guys , i currently have a Freeview aerial and a spliter running to 2 TVs . My splitter is only a 3 and the signal quality is pretty crap to the lounge to but good on the bedroom. I am looking at an extension on the house with a new lounge and a media room off the lounge. Is it better to get a new aerial for the 2 new TVs or get a new splitter box with potentially a booster?.

Get yourself a multiswitch


They combine satellite, aerial & a modulator input to 8 outputs with built in amplification
