I have (2) TVs feeding from (1) splitter. One TV has poor reception.
If I disconnect (1) cable, the other TV's reception is normal.
At the moment, I'm having to unscrew the cable of one of the TVs in order to watch
the other. The cable signal is fine.

Is there such a gadget whereby I can manually divert the signal with-out having to unscrew the cable?
:confused: tango50

sounds to me like you either have a splitter with a bad port, or the line going to the tv is shot......do the tvs have boxes????....how long is the line going to the bad tv, and to the good tv?

TV splitter w/sw

I changed the splitter with the same results.
There are no boxes.
I realize that one cable is very short and the other is twice as long....probably why I'm having the problem....that is why I want be able to divert the signal to the TV I want to watch. Save me running upstairs or down, each time.

I shall check out the A/B switch which I'm not familiar with.
Thanks for your replies.
