      I took the output from RF2 straight upto the loft to a six way splitter. There are then individual downlinks to each bedroom, kitchen and the computer.

      There are three Tv eye's powered from the splitter in the loft so the RF2 power is set off. It all works well with Sky and normal tv is available at each outlet.

      Of course the problem is, only one Sky channel can be selected so when you change over, you have to listen for shouts from other rooms before relaxing or you discover the reason for the being unable to follow the plot is the channel has changed without your noticing!

      I assume the 6 way splitter is powered with it's own power supply in the loft?

      Indeed it does have it's own power supply. Has a trendy blue led on it too!
      I didn't really want a powered splitter, but it was the only way to provide the downlinks without significant signal degeneration.

      Re: Sky RF out support multiple connections?

      Ok so installed the amplifer and have had 3 connections dropped down into each bedroom.

      The magic eye red light comes on when I attached the raw cable directly to it but when I installed the front coaxal plate that attached to the socket on the wall I no longer get any power.

      Its clear the cable is taking the power.

      Are not all front coaxal plates capable of passing the power through them?

      What do I need to get ?

      Thanks

      No, not all wall plates will allow DC pass through, you need to buy ones that say they will support DC passthrough,

      You could have a look to see if they have a small capacitor or resistor on the rear and try removing it to see if this sorts it.
