I have an aerial that we are receiving saorview on OK. This aerial's coax is plugged into a white box and from here, is plugged into a saor view telly. All works OK. The thing that is on my mind at the moment is what happens when I split the cable to get saroview on another telly.
The white box is plugged into the mains.What exactly is it doing. Is it an amplifier or is it somehow providing power to a receiver on the aerial through the coax cable?
I want to split the coax cable before this 'white box'. I want to connect this into another saorview telly. If I can get away with just an ordinary coax spliiter (http://www.ebay.ie/itm/2-Way-TV-Aeri...item20ab96db6a) that would be ideal.
Can anyone see any issues with doing this. I am conscious of the current on the cable provided by the 'white box' and am wondering if that is going to cause issues for the second telly.
The other issue I suppose is signal loss. Am I better putting some sort of an amplifier (http://www.ebay.ie/itm/6-WAY-aerial-...item519c9661fc) at the point where I split the cable.
Anyone have any ideas how I can test the signals strengths without buying any extra kit. Though about just using the tv menus. Have no idea what values they should be at though
Any help would be appreciated
