quite a while ago I decided to split the cable coming from the dish so that I could use another TV with seperate Top Box. I originally purchased a Hills 4 way splitter (BC15470SR) only to find that I couldn't get any reception through. I then read that this splitter was not the right one for a Satellite set up and I ended purchasing another type a Match Master 3 way splitter (07MM-TM13) and have had no trouble with it.
What I would like to know is what is the difference (a part from the number of outlets) is there between these two splitters
Well the 07MM-TM13 is a Sat splitter with all ports power pass.
Can't find any specs on the other but suspect it's either VHF/UHF (not suitable for Sat) or only one power pass port.
Got a photo of it?
The VHF/UHF splitters are only good to around 900mhz. Sat splitters go to around 2500mhz.
It seems to be similar to the Matchmaster
OK. Only difference is number of ports and only a single power pass port on the Hills.
