      Media Panel

      I live in a new build house (built 2011) which has a XNTE. Unfortunately, my "master" socket is a media panel (see below), and the telephone socket element is very poor.

      The media panel is the size of a double socket. Would it be possible to remove this, and replace it would a BT NTE5 and a TV socket? If so, how?

      Many thanks in advance
      Graeme

      Yes, you need a new back box that has two single gangs side by side. Bypass the XNTE with gel crimps and fit an NTE5.

      Just curious as to what the unmarked coaxial socket on the media panel is for?
