    Can anyone help or recommend any hardward that can take sat/tv/cable/radio and cctv signals and provided a 6-8 outlets for these signals, I have had a look at Philex SLx8L but its has its limits, You have to have a feed to and from distribution centre to sat receiver.

    Thanks
    Maccers :lease:

    I don't understand what you mean about feeds to and from Sat Rx - how else would you distribute the signal?

    I'm looking at the SLx8L for a friend who wants to get radio, tv and sat around the house and would be interested in anyone else's opinion. It's at:

    Because most of the signals you are talking about are uhf channels and you have limitied UHF inputs to the device you need to pass them through the sky box to be able add its channel to the off air and cctv ones.

    Why dont you just locate the sky box next to the amp, it still need to 'loop through' the box but at least it will all be local!

    Thats very expensive! I wish we could still get that sort of money for them.

    Global's Loftbox one ( and the orginial) should only be £50 - £60 inc vat

    So what does this kind of product do to the picture quality anyway? I can't imagine it's great at preserving picture detail etc, especially when you consider how good Sky can look straight out of a digibox.
