Labgear LDA204L/S 4-Way VHF / UHF Aerial Amplifier 2 Inputs 4 Outputs
It's gone wrong
The F type connections are brilliant, much easier to fit than the old type and a more positive connection.
However, after a few days of significantly improved service the TV lost all it's channels. Upon investigation the LED has gone out and there is a whistling sound coming from the unit when it is turned on. It's packed up! Hopefully Screwfix will sort it and we'll be up and running again.
I've used these before and they have been perfect, this one clearly has a problem.

Very impressed with results
Needed to send a signal to four points in the house. This unit worked "first time" and gave me 78% Signal strength and 100% signal quality to all 4 ports . Hd tv has never looked so good.

Have bought this new unit and so far it has worked brilliantly - only had it a short time thats why I have only given it 4 stars for reliability as time will tell.
The previous review is correct that the unit uses F connection not Coax but this can be used for TV reception it just means you use an F connector at one end of the cable and a Coax the other side - personally I think F connections are better as this gives you a more secure connection and ensures the cable does not fall out.
Would highly recommend.

TV4way no way
All indications are that this item is for normal TV distribution as per the item it has replaced. It is not. The connections are screw and not push so it is intended for satellite distribution. The catalogue does not make this clear. My options were to replace 5 of my existing connections or return the unit. Guess what.....I didn't replace the connections!
