" I bought this item for a friend and installed it in conjunction with a labgear home distribution unit. It works perfectly and makes a tidy job of the cableing and less of it. "

" IanH has it almost right.
Yes where as the distribution amplifier will do the job but is ie expensive all you need is the Labgear PSF410 or similar. This is designed as a masthead unit but may be removed from the box and used as a loft unit as I have done.
One Sat cable goes direct to the faceplate, the other Sat cable goes to the PSF410 along with the UHF TV cable, FM Radio cable and the DAB radio cable. These signals are then combined and exit the PST410 on the common lead which then goes to the faceplate. The return and telephone are normal connections.
I hope this clears up some of your concerns.

Tidy Solution

" The previous reviewers mentioned this being part of a bigger distribution system. It can be, however you can still use it in a simple domestic installation with SKY+ (two inputs from dish ). The sockets are straight through, with a return for a remote TV ( probably bedroom etc ). It is a large socket which will need plenty of room for cables - suggest surface mount on a concrete wall, otherwise a standard dry lined wall should be OK. I think the previous reviewers may have been confused by the fact that this socket can also be used on large commercial distrubution systems for Satellite / TV etc. - the wiring diagram from Labgear shows the use of combiners and splitters for multi distrubution points ( large house or flats etc ). Its is a clever and neat socket to bring together SKY +, TV & Radio and Telephone. Good for the price ! "

Needs extra components.

" This screened outlet box is only part of a home distribution system which isn't mentioned anywhere in the product packaging. It requires a Labgear distribution amplifier (HDU681) to be able to do the job. Google Labgear HDU681 and you'll find some good wiring schematics for the amp and various outlet box connectors. "

" Bought this product thinking it would make my installs neater and easier. NO CHANCE. As per the other reviews you need to buy other componants which then makes this product over complicated and expensive. I will stick to what I have been doing in the past and recommend to screwfix to note on there website and in books that you need to buy extra products to make this work,. I will return this product next time I am in Branch!!! "
