      From the photographs even without the new Sky cable there is quite a mess of wires.
      As regards running the cable in the gutter as one end is looped over the outside of the gutter and the other end is routed between the gutter and the wall it would appear that the cable is run along the gutter. Whether it would be submerged if there was standing water in the gutter can't be ascertained when viewed from the ground. The cable to my terrestrial TV aerial is at least five years old, part of it runs along the gutter and hasn't caused me any problems.
      As Sky would not run the cable internally the only alternative would be to run it loose across the flat roof. I've ruled out clipping it to the wall between the extension and the pitched roof as it appears to be rendered and access would be difficult. Over time render has a tendency to become detached from the brick or block-work substrate. In this situation attempting to drive nails into it could cause a lot of damage which is probably why the engineer used tie-wraps.

      When running the new cable to the extension do not drill a hole through the waterproof membrane on the flat roof as it would be virtually impossible to achieve a stable waterproof seal. If the wall is double skinned and the air gap is not filled with cavity wall insulation it may be possible for you to run the cable between the inner and outer wall.

      You shouldn't notice any difference in performance with an octo LNB and minidish when compared to the usual quad LNB, minidish combination.
