Hello, Titel.

In the US, television signal splitters and coaxial line amplifiers are commonly sold. If I wanted to accomplish the distibution of television signals you describe, I would simply purchase them at Radio Shack and hook them up. You'd want the amplifier to come first in the signal path to get the best signal to noise ratio and then be followed up with a tree of signal splitters.

Assume one amplifier and five one-to-four splitters. Let's call those splitters S1, S2, S3 S4 and S5. Your input coaxial cable would go the amplifier's input jack. The amplifier's output jack would go to the input jack of splitter S1. Then S1's four output jacks would go to the input jacks of the remaining four spltters, S2 through S5. Those four would then provide a total of sixteen outputs.

Good luck.
