If you have a TV aerial set up at home then for sure you have faced the interruption of the signal, this can be because of the trees, storm or anything else. Let’s suppose you are watching the tv and suddenly a storm happens and it causes an interruption among the signals, and what about if you are watching your favorite channel? Do you have any solution for it? No? Don’t worry we have a solution. The amplifier could help you in recovering your signals. You can use this during tv aerial installation In this article we will share different types of amplifiers
Set Back or Flyback Amplifier
A flyback amplifier is the main powered amplifier with one antenna input and one antenna output. It comes with an electrical plug so it can be plugged directly into a power outlet. These are actually one-way mains powered TV amplifiers, but are more commonly referred to as “flyback or setback amplifiers” in the antenna / satellite trade as they were commonly installed directly behind televisions.

An inline powered distribution amplifier is not the same as a DC feed through amplifier. An inline powered amplifier generally has a switch that allows a 12V DC signal through the antenna input cable to the antenna. In this way the amplifier can also be used as a power supply for a pole amplifier, if also connected. I’ll come to the head-end amps later in the article. You should be aware that this type of setup with a pole amplifier and a distribution amplifier should only be needed in very large systems / buildings and where the TV antenna signal is very weak. An amplification stage should be all that is needed. You should also be careful not to overload the distribution amplifier with too much signal, as this could cause poor TV reception.
Remote Link Amplifier
Remote link line amplifiers were a very useful kit. They were typically installed as part of Sky Playback where multiple TVs and remote eyes could be connected. Remote link line amplifiers were generally available in 2- and 4-way models powered via the coaxial cable at the input. This could be done via a power supply, but the RF2 output on the Sky box was the most used. This meant that the amplifier could be installed in places where there would otherwise be no mains power, which could greatly facilitate installation. There are larger models with more outputs, but these generally require additional power as the RF2 is unable to provide enough power to power the amplifier and connected eyes.
