TV Antenna Splitter

Almost everyone has faced the situation where they wanted to split the TV signal between multiple endpoints in their home. Cable TV providers are required to provide a signal strength that can be shared between 2-3 endpoints without any problems. However, if you want to distribute the cable TV signal to more than one endpoint, you will need to install one or more antenna splitters and sometimes a cable TV amplifier. In a home with TVs in several rooms, or in a large house with TVs far apart, this is almost a common situation. Read more...

Using an antenna splitter

Splitting the incoming TV signal is a very simple process, but it is important to pay attention to the type of broadcasting you are using. It makes a difference whether you want to share a digital terrestrial signal (DVB-T/T2) or a satellite signal (DVB-S/S2). For digital terrestrial signals, a simple two-way antenna splitter can solve the problem. It's worth knowing that the more outputs an antenna splitter has, the higher its attenuation, i.e. the more of the signal it attenuates. Regardless of whether you actually have a TV set connected. If you have installed a TV aerial that is suitable for your home, it should have enough gain to distribute the signal to two end points without any problems, and more than one distribution can lead to a degradation of the picture.

And if reception is not perfect at the moment, a possible split will only further degrade the signal quality. Cable TV incoming signals are required to be between 60 and 70 dBV. This means 10 dB attenuation with a good quality splitter. So the signal after the split will be somewhere between 50 and 60 dBV, which can cause a grainy picture on many TVs.

When is an antenna splitter not enough?

In the case of a digital terrestrial signal, if you want to split the received TV signal to more than two endpoints, you will need an antenna amplifier to ensure that reception is adequate at each endpoint. In this case you should buy a splitter of the size you actually need. If you buy a much bigger one, you will unnecessarily over-attenuate the incoming signal.

Furthermore, it is not worth splitting the satellite signal in the traditional way with an antenna splitter, as the cable coming out of the head cannot be split in this case. If you want to use multiple satellite receivers, you need multiple outputs, each of which acts as a separate satellite head. If it is simply distributed, the indoor satellite receiver units connected to it may give different commands to the head, which will then certainly not work properly.

The 2 way Emos antenna splitter from DND is the perfect choice for most TV signal sharing situations. With its two outputs and 3.7 dB attenuation, you can easily split the signal from the antenna to two separate TV sets. All this without causing signal loss and picture grain.
