Am I being compltely blonde???

We have an aerial socket in our lounge.

We have one TV which connects to the aerial point. We have another TV in the room next door, and have drilled a hole through the wall so we can connect the two TVs to the one aerial point using a splitter.

However, signal must not be strong enough as only one TV works at a time.

So we bought a booster.

But although the two cables from the two TVs plug into the booster unit, there is nothing to connect the booster unit to the aerial point in the wall.

My brain hurts. I can't be the only house in the UK with two TVs and one aerial point. Please help!

yep, you need a short length of coax with the correct sex plugs to link the wall socket to the booster.

You need a short lead with a ariel plug on each end. One plugs in the ariel socket on the wall. the other end into the 'in' on the booster and connect your two TVs to the tv outs on the booster.
