    Hi

    Today managed to hard wire a few rooms in with Satellite cable only to find out the TV link isn't working now.

    Previously I had one set on the second output with no booster.

    I think the problem is my booster not allowing power through the booster loop.
    (Only a cheap one)

    Can anyone correct me if I'm wrong, and recommend a decent booster pref 4 / 6 way that will allow the TV link to work.

    Do you know if you can have a TV link in each room ????

    Cheers

    Lee

    You can just get a bypass cable for the booster from Maplins for about £7.99 (http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx...s and Splitters&FromMenu=y&doy=21m2&worldid=6) and my local B&Q do the same thing. If you want to buy a new booster with built-in bypass look at the Slx ones on the same link.

    As for having them in more than one room I believe that it is possible, if connected correctly, to have up to four of them. Whether the SLx booster does this I dont know.

    yes try b&q or maplin for slx booster with digieye passthru, or you can get tvlink boosters as well. You can have eyes in every room but only with an ir passthru booster
