Hi all, a little advice if possible please...
I currently have basic sky and was thinking of upgrading to HD. at the moment I only have the one cable coming through the wall, and I believe HD is 2 cables. Can anybody tell me the thickness of the 2 cables and if they route them through the same hole or 2 separate ones.
The reason for this bizarre question is that I'm currently decorating and would like to get it done before installation which would mean me drilling the hole myself. Do I just make the existing hole bigger or drill a second one underneath.
Many thanks in advance.

When I first went over to SKY+ the twin cable fitted through the existing hole. Perhaps to be on the safe side you could put a slightly larger drill bit through it.Sony KDL40V4000 - Sony BDP-S350 BluRay - Onkyo TX-SR507 - Energy Take Classic 5.1 Speakers - Samsung SKY+HD - Digital Stream DHR8205 - Xbox 360 - PS3 Slim 320GB - Harmony One - iMac 27" 3.1 Ghz Intel Core i5.

If the total length is less than 20 metres you can use WF65 "shotgun" cable which will fit through the standard 10mm hole. See

Am I correct (judging by the responses so far) that the cables used in HD are the same as for regular Sky+? I currently have all mine fed under the carpets but don't want to have to lift them up (potentially) for new cables (thinking of upgrading to HD)

I personally think £30 to do what Sky are doing is a bargain. Not many industries would come out to site and carry out work for that price, even if it is only 20-30 mins.
Can you think of any?
