    I have purchased an '8 way' TV/FM distributor that I intend to use to distribute Sky to 3 other T.V's using magic eyes.The distributor is powered and provides a 13db gain. My question is this; given that the magic eye operates by utilising 9v power from the RF2 outlet will I damage the distributor/amplifier with this voltage passing through it's electronics? In other words can I only distribute the signal without powered amplification because of the voltage in the cable? :rolleyes:

    Depending on the manufacturer you need to be aware of a number of things.

    1. The 9v from RF2 should not effect it

    2. The Amp will probably block the rf2 voltage and supply its own power

    3. Is the amp tvLINK / sky eye compatable?

    4. Are the outlets you are going to use NON-ISOLATED, if not they will not pass the power for the eyes.
