HDTV Antenna Installation

Would you like more information on the installation process?  Here’s the process we use to install our favourite low-profile Digital TV Antenna.

If you have lots of big trees or tall buildings in between you and the TV broadcast towers in your area and you are more than 30 miles (48 km’s) from them you likely would benefit from a Pre-Amplifier.

A pre-amplifier is a two piece electronic device of which the inside part, through the coax cable provides power to the outside part installed near the TV antenna head. It’s purpose is to make sure that whatever signal strength the TV antenna captures that no further loss occurs traveling down the cable to your TV. It’s especially helpful for distant weaker channels.

Because the signal is now powered (amplified) from the antenna it can usually feed up to two TV’s with a 2 way splitter no problem.

However if you have more than two TV’s then a different type of amplifier may be also needed. This is called a Distribution Amplifier which is basically a powered splitter. A distribution amplifier makes sure that long cable runs to multiple TV’s will not reduce the signal strength to where channels are lost. This is what they use in bars and restaurants with multiple wall mounted TV’s

Do you need both? There’s a bit of science involved as it’s even possible to have too much signal, but don’t worry Skyview techs will be happy to advise you of the right set up for your application.
