"I purchased this item to replace my original 6-way device, purchased some 10 years ago. Both are manufactured by Labgear of Bedford who are a leading name in TV and FM amplifiers and accessories. This amplifier allows a signal from the TV aerial to be connected via the DVD and my Virgin Media box, to every room in the house. via coaxial cable. One of the eight outputs is returned to the aerial socket of the master TV. The RF output from both additional ancillary boxes is set to an individual unused TV channel, so, when routed by the aerial input of the amplifier can each be tuned in on separate channels of the connected remote TVs. Similarly, the outdoor FM aerial is also combined with the 8 outputs to allow an FM radio to be connected to each designated outlet. As stated, the original item had been in constant use for over 10 years and the internal power supply had become noisy, causing 'hum bars' on the TV screens connected to it. I am an electronics engineer and I could have easily repaired it myself but decided to take advantage of the development in performance of more modern components which the new amplifier would obviously contain. What a fantastic transformation in signal clarity the new item produced. The difference was really unbelievable. No noise; excellent gain and two more outputs to connect TV' sets or FM radios located in remote places. Incidentally, the dimensions and general appearance of the new item is very similar to that replaced. Even the mounting screws fit in their original location. An excellent item, highly recommended, either as an upgrade or for a new installation."
