Hi -

Spotted a Triax 304264 in a catalogue and thought it would be ideal for providing two satellite outlets, a TV and Radio socket:
AP0154206-40.jpg

But it's a bit more complicated than that, isn't it?! :-doh2

I hadn't realised it was for multiple distribution, and having spent quite a while searching, I can't seem to find any technical documentation on this item.

Can anyone help with how this should be connected and what complementary part I might need for the 'other end'?

Thanks.

You need to ues a triplexer/diplexer for the sat1 feed and TV/radio feeds, the sat2 feed is another cable.

what do you have set up at the moment?

Nothing! It's a brand new installation (brand new house, actually!) and I want to bring two sat cables (from twin LN:cool: a normal terrestrial aerial and (maybe) an FM antenna to one point on the wall.

The only things currently installed (temporarily) are the two sat cables, but I will probably be replacing those as I think they're RG62 rather than CT100.

As you say, from inspection, the Sat2 socket seems to be a direct connection to one of the inputs. The Sat1 is a lot more complicated!
