        TV Splitters: Everything You Need to Know

        What is a TV Splitter?

        A TV splitter is a device that allows you to connect multiple TVs to a single antenna. This can be useful if you have multiple TVs in your home and want to watch the same channels on all of them.

        How do TV splitters work?

        TV splitters work by dividing the signal from the antenna into multiple signals. This allows each TV to receive a clear signal, even if they are located in different parts of the house.

        What are the different types of TV splitters?

        There are two main types of TV splitters: passive and active. Passive splitters are the most common type of splitter. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to install. Active splitters are more expensive than passive splitters but offer better performance.

        How to choose the right TV splitter for your needs?

        When choosing a TV splitter, there are a few things you need to consider:

        • The number of TVs you want to connect
        • The distance between the antenna and the TVs
        • The quality of the signal from the antenna

        How to Connect Coaxial Cables to the TV Splitter?

        For a professional installation, you will need F-Type RG6 Coaxial crimp connectors, quality coaxial cable, a knife, coaxial cable strippers and a crimping tool.

        1. Using a coaxial cable stripper, run the stripper around the coaxial cable about 15mm from the end. Be careful not to cut the inner conductor.
        2. Pull back the braided wires back over the coaxial outer insulation.
        3. Strip about 6mm of the dielectric insulation from the inner conductor.
        4. Insert the inner conductor into the F-type crimp connector until it is flush with the front of the connector.
        5. Place the F-type crimp connector in the crimping tool and squeeze the handles together. This will crimp the connector onto the coaxial cable.
        6. Trim off any excess conductor that is sticking out of the connector.

        Your coaxial cable is now ready to be used. Please consult a professional before connecting the cable to the splitter.

        FAQ Section

        Q: What is the difference between a passive and an active TV splitter?

        A: passive TV splitter divides the signal from the antenna equally between the connected TVs. This can lead to a loss of signal quality, especially if multiple TVs are connected. An active TV splitter amplifies the signal before it is divided, which helps to prevent signal loss.

        Q: How many TVs can I connect to a single antenna?

        A: The number of TVs you can connect to a single antenna depends on the type of splitter you use. A passive splitter can typically support up to four TVs, while an active splitter can support up to eight TVs.

        Q: What is the best place to put a TV splitter?

        The best place to put a TV splitter is as close to the antenna as possible. This will help to prevent signal loss.

        Q: How do I install a TV splitter?

        A: You will need the following tools to complete a professional installation.
