      What cables will I need - communal sky dish.

      I am shortly going to be moving to a new flat that has a communal sky dish.

      Each flat has a faceplate with sockets for sky. What cables will I need to connect my sky box to one of these sockets?

      Would I be better off cutting off the cable in my current flat and fitting an adapter to the cut ends, or is there a specific cable for this?

      Thanks in advance.

      Re: What cables will I need - communal sky dish.

      You will need something like this -
      [ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/2m-F-Connector-Satellite-Cable-Premium/dp/B003S8SM0Q/ref=pd_cp_ce_2"]2m F-Connector Satellite Cable - Premium quality: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics[/ame]

      If you get 2 connections to the dish, you will need 2 of these. Many flats with a communal dish only have 1 connection per flat.

      You can of course, cut off the cables in your existing house and make things difficult for the next occupant.
