What Is It?
The Labgear LDU608G is an eight way aerial amplifier with multi inputs. It is designed to increase and improve FM radio, DAB radio, CCTV, VCR/DVD, satellite and terrestrial TV signals to up to 8 televisions/radios around the home from one location (e.g. loft).
How Does It Work?
SkyPlus and SkyHD
The Labgear LDU608G has the LNB1 and LNB2 input and downlinks required by SkyPlus and SkyHD.
The infrared extender feature gives control over different AV sources from any viewing/listening location in conjunction with SLx Link (s). The Labgear LDU608G has an integrated digital bypass - the infrared extender works in conjunction with Sky™. If you would like to use the extender with other devices you can, but you need to use either an Omni Link or a Bluedelta Smart Blaster to power the link and rebroadcast the remote control signals.
The Labgear LDU608G has an Integrated UHF pre-amplifier and an integrated power supply. It has a LNB power indicator and silver-grey metallic finish. The Labgear LDU608G is fully screened and ideal for digital satellite. Distribution of output from a set top box, DVD or VCR requires you to send a return path UHF signal to the loft - the Labgear LDU608G has an up link in socket for this. This up link is important as when using a Labgear LDU608G distribution box, there will be no signal at the outputs unless the circuit is completed by linking the downlink output to the uplink input after the signal is passed through your satellite receiver. This is so that the satellite signal (and video signal if required) can also be distributed around the house. If you are not connecting to a satellite receiver, then you need to set the switch on the top of the Labgear LDU608G to UHF and CCTV only. The unit has a built in 4G filter to prevent interference from the 4G mobile phone network.
The Labgear LDU608G is often used with the SLx Link , the Global TV Link or the V55-002 Visionlink .
If you need F-Plugs, coaxial plugs, crimping tools or other installation accessories please see our Coaxial Accessories section.
You may also need a Labgear PSW351T or a Labgear PSW241 . These allow separate feeds to and from the Labgear LDU608G, giving a socket for RF, two F Plug sockets for Satellite TV and a FM/DAB Digital Radio socket. The PSW351T also provides both a return path and a telephone socket (ideal for Sky Plus and Sky HD).
