Hi people. hoping someone can share some light on my confusion. Ive been rigging up my Toshiba 36 zp with dvd vcr & sky. In addition to this i connect a UHF aerial. I understand (pls correct if i am wrong) that the center core & outside braiding on UHF cables are independant of each other. Why when i connect my voltmeter across the centre core & braiding do i get continuty only after it comes out of a splitter on tv? From my aerial they cable comes into sky- (cable checked ok) from sky into VCR (cable checked ok) from vcr into 3 way spliter (cable checked ok) 3 way splitter direct into telly cable from other terminal on 3 way splitter back to loft booster & then distributed into other rooms. The cable that comes from splitter to booster is only 1m & i have tested this disconnected ok. however when connected into the 3way splitter the continuity across the center core and braiding is breached???????? I have replaced the 3 way splitter but the same happens. If i disconnect this from tv then there is no continuity..strange. Is this normal? if it is i just waisted about 3 hours checking all my connections-cable...... Thank you.
