Hello all,

I am after a suitable 4 way splitter from the TV out socket on the wall to two tv cards (one is dual) and the VCR. All up there is 4 plugs. I currently have Feeview HD etc.
I notice the quality has become degraded sometimes significantly especially on prime. The house is setup with the signal from the Ariel which is amplified to the required rooms. Its a new installation of about two months.
I got a $20 4-way splitter from Dicksmiths and it degraded the signal enough for me to take it back. If the signal isn't split then it looks great.
Im looking for a splitter that will amplifier the signal and split it 4 ways.
Note there is already a amplifier installed so im not sure how this will effect it having another?
As you can see I don't know much about this, I just want it to work :)

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I use one of these:

Works quite well splitting the signal to 3 tuner cards plus the tv as a backup.

Thanks for your help.

I saw one of these on Trademe a while ago and wondered if it would do the trick.
Im just not sure on what effect it will have seeing the singal is already amplified?

So would amplifying the  already amplified signal cause any issues?

And at $90 I wanted to make a few checks to make sure its fine.

Do you notice any issues using it?
