I am renovating a new house (in the UK). The roof antenna at present is only connected directly to the main tv socket, I would like to add more tv points to most rooms in the house but am unsure of the best (and cheapest) way to split the single incoming RF signal.
Note: only two or three TVs will be in use at any one time.
Ground floor - 5 TV sockets. First floor - 6 TV sockets. Second floor - 4 TV sockets.
Do I take take the main antenna cable into the loft space and split it 15 ways with long cables leading directly to each wall socket. Or do I split each floor with a feed down to the next, ie Second floor split 4 ways + 1 to the next floor, where it is split 6 ways + 1 to the next, where it is split 5 ways.
Which is the best option to ensure good signal at each output and also in terms of cost of length of cable vs running powered amplifiers?
What type of splitters are best suited for this job?
