      Sky HD Cable query

      Hi all, i am currently renovating a property and i want Sky HD. I am running the cable myself due to the fact that it is easier to do so with my house in its current state (empty). I need clarification on the type of Sky HD uses. Is it Twin Satellite Coax Cable Compatible with CT100 connectors?, if so how many runs do i need (only want 1 feed to Sky HD box connected to 1 HDTV plasma).

      Many thanks for your help

      Yes that sounds ok, you would only need one run with that as it is two cables stuck together. (you need two cables from dish to receiver) Ensure you have located the correct position for the dish, you don't want to have to extend it afterwards.

      You may also wish to run the aerial into it whislt you have a chance and the RF2 feed OUT to another room or into the loft for an amplifier as well.

      Agreed. Take the opportunity to run additional LNB cables on a 'just in case' basis.
