Hi,

I wanted to find out the best way of connecting around 15 tvs to an aerial for freeview viewing. I'm trying to find a splitter and signal booster for this but i'm not having a lot of luck.

What would be the best way of going about this? Someone suggested to me that having a satellite fitted would allow me to pick up signal for the freeview channels and tune them into the tvs but I thought you had to have an individual satellite receiver for each tv?

What you need is an integrated reception system (IRS), this takes the signal from a single aerial and/ satellite dish which is connected to a multiswitch which will have a number of outlets for each TV point. A single system could have 24 outlets and larger systems can be made by cascading them. Sometimes hundreds of TVs are run off a single aerial.

It is the aerial signals from Freeview or Satellite that are distributed to each TV point, so you still need the appropriate recieving equipment at each point to actually see the programmes.

I would suggest that you need to get a local installer who specialises in this type of work to advise you what needs to be done, as you clearly have no idea how to do it.
