    Hi, not sure if anyone out there can help me.

    I have inherited someone elses setup. There is a powered spliter in the loft, with a powere box downstairs in the spere room, this seems to sent the powere up to the spliter via coxail cable. This box has been damaged and if moved we loose all picture.

    1. can anyone offer a link to similar products?
    2. Are there are still amps like this available out there?
    3. can anyone offer a better solution (I have no power sockets in the loft)

    Any help greatly appriciated :lease:

    It's called a masthead amplifier, you should be able to find plenty doing a search on that.

    Does the damaged box show output voltage? Probably 12v though I think 5V sometimes. Can't you mend it? Probably just a connection.

    The one you identify s/b fine; though I would check for cheaper on ebay/Maplins/Argos. Input brand/model no of the one you have for power supply

    Just bear in mind that some cheap Chinese brands have a reputation for turning into fire lighters. :cool:
