      Question regarding Dish Input 1&2 Cables

      Hi All

      I moved my Sky+HD box down a shelf on my TV stand hoping my PS3 might get a better wireless signal higher up.

      When i connected the Dish Inputs one and two back in everything seems to be ok ( recording 2 programmes,signal strength and quality) but there's some outer braiding on the cable's, When the engineer's came out i dont think they used decent cable's.

      I was wondering if this was ok and if it can effect anything ? The Inputs are screwed back in Securely. Should i just keep an eye on it, Do Sky engineer's come out and replace cables if need ?

      Cheers

      As long as the braiding is not shorting with the inner core, it will be OK. Having a bit of braiding exposed behind the lock screw is not unusual.

      I was wondering weather it could effect the signal quality as some of mine are quite low but the signal stength is mostly high.

      Thanks for the Help
