Essential Info

This amplifier works like a zero-loss splitter. The signals coming into the amplifier will be about 3dB stronger at the device (television, VCR, etc). The amplifier brings up the level of the signal just enough to overcome the losses associated with splitting the signal 8 ways and traveling down 100 to 150 feet of coax cable. The 3x8 1-Way Video Distribution Panel is used with high performance antenna applications for off-air digital and NTSC signals. It is also ideal for cable-serviced homes that don't need return path capability.


What's Included

  • 3x8 1-Way Video Distribution Panel DA550HHR
  • Power supply
  • More Info

    This model includes an IR engine that will pass IR control signal over the coax cable between rooms or locations in the home. The 12-volt bi-directional IR engine works with #7713WRA In-Wall IR Interface and a #7718WR 12 Volt IR Target. Each room can have one of these targets and the signals are routed to a #7701RM 4-Channel S-Video Modulator with MTS Stereo Sound.

    Product is as reviewed by others . . . Works great and picture in the home network has never looked better.

    The first one I received had a loose power connector and had to be returned.
    KEN -- chelsea, MI   3/1/2009
    Seemed to work as advertised. Sure great to have 8 outputs without the normal significant splitter losses. That alone significantly improved my video throughout the house. The 2 Aux inputs seemed to be less sensitive than the Ant input requiring me to put a gain booster on that feed line, but in fairness I am running that input about 75 feet across the house and may just be suffering cable losses before the signal gets to the Dist Panel. The one critique I have is that the instructions are NOT clear about whether you need DC Blockers, or not. Everything seemed to imply that all outputs needed DC Blockers or the 7712R power supply would trip off. Since I hadn't ordered any I thought I'd try anyway to see if all my outputs would need one, and all worked OK! No pwr trips have ever occured, so not sure what the warning is all about.
