Crackles on Optical output?


Active Member

I'm trying to send my optical output from Sky to a unit upstairs, an optical cable alone won't work as its too lossy as I need to use a splitter as well, I have a 10 meter lenght cable to drive it up.

So I thought I'd try and in-line optical amplifier to boost the signal, this sort of works, but I am getting "Crackles" on the audio upstairs, not down stairs? Is this because it is still boarder line in working and not working?

I'm only using a cheap and cheerful £6.00 amplifier (Silver), does anyone know where I can get a better quality one which will run though a 10 meter optical cable without the crackles?
