I want to share a TV signal between the VCR and the shiny new media PC.
So I went along to Dick Smith and bought a coax splitter thingy, pictured.
But why on earth does it have a male connection on the input, and a female connection on the output? I know cables vary, but surely it should assume the opposite?
It looks like the other one they stock is the same.
As it is, to make this work I’m going to need to use gender bender adapter thingies on all three connections. That’s just silly.
(Or have I somehow got myself some kind of unique antenna cable setup?)
