I am in the process of buying a channel plus 5545 off of eBay, and spent the day re-running the cable after it had accidentally made contact with
an active 20amp circuit - Not hiring that electrician again! (
I am placing the 5545 in a closet with the mixer, a coax cable will go from there to the ceiling of the room where the 6 way splitter/amp will be (power is already in place),
there the coax strands will go out to each of the 5 televisions.
However - i am having some trouble finding a decent 5 way splitter,
Am i correct in thinking that it needs to be an active (powered) distribution panel?
And if so, are there any self-contained models you would suggest?
And one other question, it turns out they want to have the set top box for the DirectTv in the gym,
i have a coax cable run from the gym to where the 5455 will be in "the loft area", what would be the best way to run it?
Use the coax out on the stb and go straight into some sort of coax combiner then to the amp, or convert it to rca at the source?
What is the best way to 'split off' the audio in order to send it to a 1/4" input on the mixer?
Thanks again, i really am learning a lot here - maybe one day(quite aways off...) i'll do some of the advice giving instead of just asking for stuff.
