Jul 28: Splitter

I'm trying to feed a signal from a loft aerial into our previously Sky (satellite) only TV system. So, the aerial feed goes into the Sky RF in, then RF1 out to the big telly an RF2 out to the distribution box. Only thing is the aerial was here when we moved in and we have no idea where the cable goes to. That doesn't really matter as 40 year old coax wouldn't be up use with the modern digital signal. I've managed to get it all working with a temporary cable (i.e. cable across the living room carpet) solution and wow! Once I removed this splitter from the signal path, the digital terrestrial pic from the dusty old loft aerial makes Sky look like cr*p! It still works in the rain too, unlike the satellite dish. I'm going to need to use the big drill and make big holes in the house to route the cable properly tho... 8-O
