I have a dilema where I have a single aerial in My house but need to distrubte the signal to 6 rooms.

I have looked at signal boosters that You instal in the loft but all require a mains supply to be present which I do not have access to.

Any ideas???Hmm

Well, you could use something like this, which is powered via one of the output lines using a power supply like this which you have next to one of your TVs.

I use the signal booster at the point where the aerial comes into the house and from there use a splitter, no need to use more boosters. I have 4 tv's connected, so i have a 1 in 4 out splitter. One tv is 25 meters from booster and it works fine. Place the splitter in the roof space and run wires from there to the other rooms.

You can use a mast head amplifier/splitter which is sited as close to your aerial as you can get it. They can be powered by another box which sits anywhere else (where you have a power supply) which fires the power back up the aerial lead.
