      Sky Installation

      Hi guys,

      sorry I didn't know where else to put this.

      I have just moved into a new house.

      The former owner had Virgin Media, but there is also a BT socket in the house, but it's in the first floor box bedroom.

      If i want this moving to downstairs for the Sky install, do i have to get BT in first to do this, or is this something the Sky enginners themselves can do during install?

      Also I want another Bt socket put on the upstairs landing for the broadband router to sit on so it's sitting upstairs and can give out a better wireless signal to the whole house.

      Again, do I need BT to do this beforehand or can Sky do this?

      Also, do you think it would be better having it the other way around so that the broadband is going through the master? I.e. master put on the upstairs landing and another socket put downstairs for the sky box, as I assume the sky box doesn't need to be connected to a master.

      Yes that would be a lot better than putting it through an extension

      I'f i'm right then you can move your BT master socket but you just cant touch any of the wiring.

      Re: Sky Installation

      are you sure the socket in the bedroom in the master ? i only ask as when i moved into my house the previous owner also had virgin / NTL and they also had a phone socket in the bedroom (but it was not the master).

      follow the line where it comes in from out side and the first socket wil be the master (should be a NTE5 like the first link in my sig, or will have the extra bits on if its not a new stlye NTE5 one)
