This is a Maxview MXL008 DC powered TV signal booster. It is designed for people caravanning, camping, boating, truck drivers etc. It is powered from either a 24V or 12V vehicle battery. It cannot be powered from mains electricity. It does not have a cigar lighter style plug attached. Instead it comes with a DC power cable to connect direct to a 12V or 24V battery or a connection feed from a battery.
If you are struggling to receive some of the digital terrestrial channels clearly or are experiencing picture break up on your TV, this may be due to being in a very poor signal area and a signal booster may be required.
When connected between your aerial and TV/Set top box, a booster will amplify the signal being received from your closest TV transmitter. The now amplified signal should then give you more chance of receiving a clearer, stronger and more stable picture.
The Maxview MXL008 12/24V DC Variable Gain Signal Booster is designed for use in touring applications to boost and distribute both TV and FM signals. The Maxview MXL008 12 Volt TV Signal Booster features a variable gain control, allowing for optimum signal adjustment to give the best possible picture and sound quality.
