Home Distribution Unit

Does anyone know where I can get one of these units from?

Also, will my set up work without one?

Thanks

John

Re: Home Distribution Unit

Hi

You should not need a HDU unless your signal is low

Hope this helps

Hi

 

Virginmedia HDU is only used to increase signal levels for two or more devices. They dont give you an option to watch TV in every rooms.

Re: Home Distribution Unit

hi

 

a HDU will only be fitted on install/service if the engineer deems the downstream or upstream signals would be out of spec if a conventional splitter was used. 

it offers no form of boost its a powered splitter which doesn't suffer from signal loss like a non powered splitter.
