Rated 4 out of 5 by from Missing information I had to replace a 17 year old unit which was beginning to show its age. Assumed that this would be a simple direct replacement so did not read all the reviews. This was a big mistake as the absence of referring to the aerial connections I had "assumed" that the existing coaxial would just plug in. These units are fitted with F plug screw fittings but there is no mention of this anywhere on the specifications. The solution is quite straightforward using converter sockets 73805, but required me to make another trip out to pick them up. I could have changed the plugs on the existing cabling but at my age don't mess about in the attic any more than I have to (I had soldered the existing coax sockets on the cables when fitted so no problems with the existing connections)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far excellent Echo what other said, moved into new house Friday, BBC one freeview was great, itv onwould was nackered, had a very old labgear electrknic spliter in the loft which was very much pre freeview, replaced with this one and all the channels are back, gone from at least 7 interference to none at all now! Can't comment on reliability yet but if it's anything like the one replaced hopefully should give us many happy years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Had a standard splitter and picked up 10 channels which were very intermittent, connected this up and received 150+ channels, can't say on reliability but so far a very good product, and no noise.

Answer: 
Hi, this product will not help I am afraid. The Freesat box would need a separate feed from the LNB on the satellite dish so would require an independent cable run. Thanks

In the box was a "F-Type Plug", i.e. it fitted the F-Type socket but was a sealed unit. What is if for?
I have assumed it is to plug the VHF input that I'm not using to avoid any stray signals but can find no details in the instructions.

Answer: 
Hi, It is a 75 Ohm terminator and can be fitted to inputs or outputs to aid signal transmission, however it is usually never used and if it is fitted it is usually on a 6 or 8 way amplifier full output when not used to feed a second amplifier, on smaller output amplifiers it can be used to terminate any unused port if required. Thanks

There are two very similar looking products that appears to do the same and I cant tell what's the difference between the two even with you compare function.

Could you explain why I would choose this vs the slightly cheaper Labgear LDL204 you offer?

Thank you

Hi, The LDA range does not offer the infrared bypass facility to operate SKY receivers from a remote location using its remote control the LDL range does. We hope this helps. Thanks

Answer: 
The LDA204L seems to be for standard freeview setups. it supplies 12volt 50ma power back up the UHF input to be used if you have an masthead preamp. It is short circuit protected. I have one of these and can confirm that only the UHF plug has 12volts on it.

The other unit (white ones) I think is actually a LDL204 which is for satellite systems and seems to provide 9V 15mA on all ports ( don't actually have one of these so going on data sheets.)

I did not want 9v on all ports and felt that the LDA204 might handle Freeview better as the other is designed for satellite signals.
