      Anyone know how to wire one of these up :D ?

      Hiya long time to speak how is everyone?

      Currently having the kitchen and living room done up and thought I'd make the wires a bit less messy. I've acquired a TV socket for my aerial and Sky dish. Now I'm slightly confused to how to go about connecting it.

      So considering this has some connection with Sky and we have a lot of talented people on this form I'd thought I'd ask for help?

      This is what I have.



      My intention was to use the left socket for the Sky and the right for the VHF/TV aerial correct?

      This is the setup inside the socket.



      To my understanding I run the cable through the gap , between the screw and then solder it to the five pins?

      And on the left simply do the above but feed the wire through the hole?

      This came with no instructions so I assume its dead easy , so sorry for the noobishness on this one .

      Looks similar to a unit I installed, although:

      Strip the outer flex and use the first two screws to clampdown on the outer metal fibre ;
      then wrap the inner core around the single screw- tighten all and jobs a "good-un". Shouldn't have to solder.

      Just a thought but if you ever upgrade to + or hd then that outlet wont work.
      You may want to consider one of these GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS|WPTV-FM-SAT-SAT2|PLATE, TRIPLEX/SAT 2 | CPC for futureproofing, tho I suppose you could always change it in the future if you do upgrade.
