This splitter is really light weight. My old 5 way splitter weights more than this one. 8 way splitter works; except the PBS station comes in weak at my location and the 8 way splitter will not pass on the signal. All other audio and video signals get split properly.
I am a cord cutter and us a high def antenna that is atop a 30-40 foot high pole and gives me 65 free channels in Boise Idaho. I have many tv's in the house and it was important to me to get the feed to all the tvs without diluting the signal .....so by design i had the longest run from the antenna in to the basement/crawl space underneath the house where it was connected to the splitter and from there 8 (shorter) individual runs to all tv's from below average run 15 to 20 feet """" the picture is awesome on all tv's I highly recommend the splitter
I needed to equip a property with OTA TV but it had many outlets so instead of deciding which ones could connect, I put this 8 port splitter in place to solve the issue. I am using it with a single amplified OTA HD outdoor antenna and all TVs have good signal. I know that there must be a small loss involved in splitting it up but in my case it made no impact and all sets works fine.
Had a hard time locating a local distributor for digital cable box compatible splitters. This splitter does function with Cisco cable dvr's. The threads such that it is very hard to install the F-connectors properly. They may have to be turned with a die to deepen the threads.
