Apologies if this is a bit OT... I posted this to uk.tech.digital-tv but
got a stony silence - must be a pretty straightforward question so
don't know why.
I have Virgin cable at home, with their V+ PVR box. I want to take the
output from that (coax) and distribute it around the house to several
rooms - I know that means you can't control the channels or PVR output
in the other rooms, but that's OK.
Cabling to most of the rooms are already actually in place from a
previous TV distribution system, and I know it does work, using an old
existing cheapo Maxview 3-way amp thing which I already have plugged in
upstairs in the airing cupboard, however (a) I'm sure better picture
quality is possible with a decent amp and (b) I need a new one with a
minimum of 7 outputs.
Any recommendations for a suitable bit of kit?
Since my original post I've come across what's apparently a dedicated
distribution amp for Virgin cable - product ref TVX 67A at
Can anyone confirm - do you need a special amp because it's a cable TV
output rather than terrestrial TV? The above is quite pricey at 39 quid
compared with 'ordinary' kit - is it worth it?
