Hi Forum. Total rookie here, so apologies if missing the netiquette in any way. I want to have Satellite and Terrestrial TV sent to four TVs. I am wondering what is the best approach to mitigate signal loss. A local supplier suggested:

1. 4 LNBs, 1 Aerial. 4x combiners to send to TVs over single coax each, then sat/aerial splitters at TV to output back to 2 cables for receiver.

2. Quad LNB into multi-switch. Again using combiners and splitters to send over 1 coax.

I'm unsure if this is the best approach, will it lead to unacceptable signal loss? I appreciate it depends on the distances required, but would it be better to NOT combine and split the signals, and instead just send over 2 coax cables per TV?

Does anyone have other suggestions for a better approach?
 
I don't think you will be losing any quality combining to a single coax cable.
If you used two coaxs this would be better from the viewpoint of reliability since you would not be dependent on the sat equipment for your OVA channels. The 2nd coax could also be a spare if you go the single route. The wire is cheap and labor is the same to run one as two coax.
If you are concerned with quality Spaun makes excellent satellite distribution gear
