What Is It?
The SLxG 8 Way is an aerial amplifier and signal booster that is
designed to increase and improve TV, DAB and FM signals. It also allows
you to link more than one TV to a Sky decoder box using cable. Like the
more basic SLx B models in the SLx range the SLxG has an integrated
digital bypass so it can be used with the SLx Link. This means that you
can use the remote control to control a Sky box from the second TV.
However, unlike the other SLx amplifiers, the SLxG has both short
circuit protection and surge and spike protection. This is important -
as the number one cause of failure of aerial amplifiers is voltage
How Does It Work?
The SLxG 8 Way aerial amplifier is mains powered. You can connect it to
a VCR, satellite receiver, plug your analogue aerial into it or connect
to an FM or DAB aerial. The SLxG 8 Way aerial amplifier then enhances
any signal passed through it. It has two inputs (which can be used
either for a TV or for FM or DAB digital radio) and eight outputs. The
eight outputs mean that you can split or boost the signal so it passes
to up to eight TVs.
It is often used to complement the SLx Link.

amplifier with the SLx Link you will not need the SLx Amplifier By-pass
