    Please can you help, I am trying to split the TV aerial to feed two televisions. I have a splitter (1 male, 2 females) unfortunatley the tv aerial coming in is a male so how do I wire up ?? I can't seem to find a splitter that has 1 female and 2 males. What am I doing wrong ? Or what do I need ? Thanks

    To fit two females together you need a double ended dildo, i mean a connector with male plugs each side! On the other hand, it's probably best to cut all the ends off and fit F connectors (only use a coax connector at the tv end) - while your at it, check if the cable is a decent thickness and has a decent amount of shielding, there should be plenty of braid and a copper foil layer. probably best to get some new cable eh? :)
