Splitting Sky/TV signal to 4 TVs

Hi All

I've just installed 2 extra TVs and bought a 4 way splitter to relace my 2 way one. Problem is when I connect them up the signal is very poor an the standy light on the sky hd box is flickering. The extra TV's are fed with the higher quality brown satellite cable.

The splitter is a Triax4 way splitter/amplifier and is powered from the RF2 outlet on the sky -it does have a 12v inlet for external powering - do I need to use this?

Any ideas?:lease:

Yes you will. I had a similar set up using an SLx 4-way splitter but this needed to be powering independantly from the Sky box. I had no issues with the signal once it was powered up and boosting the splits!! :smashin:

the sky box will power it enough for 2 extra tv,s, i dont know if it will do more.
But like bagpuss says try thy the 12v power.
Process of elimination :)
