    Hi, I’m looking to get a VM line setup and was wondering what is a decent box to get? I don’t want to spend a fortune on one due to the uncertainty over the future of the VM lines. Thanks

    Would go with the Zgemma as if the end comes for VM lines it is easy to use for IPTV also i made the switch from sly line using mine.

    the only splitters worth using with cable are Tratec, Technetix or Labgear, anything else will give you trouble and cause pixellation
    Tratec and Technetix are available on ebay
    Labgear can be bought from Screwfix

    When looking at splitters which MHz would be best as there are various in the range,
    Labgear 5-1000MHz, 5-2400MHz ???

    5-1000mhz would be best if they are available

    Why would the increased output from the 5-2400MHz not be better,
    Just looking at a couple of the Technetix and a 5-1218Mhz gives you 4.5db out put on both feeds but the 5-1000MHz gives 3.6db on each out put ??
    is less more in this situation.

    not sure it's output, just a range...5-1218 may give a maximum of 4.5 and the other a max of 3.6db
