      Cabling for moving home

      I was wondering if someone might be able to help me.

      I currently live in a house where the cable for my Sky box comes directly from the dish/LNB.

      However, I'm soon to be moving to a flat where there is a communal dish. There's a faceplace in my flat similar "Single satellite point connection" image at : Sky.com - Sky Products>Join Sky>Sky In Flats

      I spoke Sky this morning who said that I should take my Sky equipment with me and do a self-install.

      However, because there's a faceplate, I'm lacking the cable to connect this to my Sky box.

      I would appreciate any advice that people might give me on where I could purchase such a cable?

      Many thanks

      Most DIY stores or Argos sell them.
      They are terminated in F type connectors.

      Thanks :-) That's awesome. When I spoke to Sky this morning, they said that such a cable would cost 30! Glad to hear that it doesn't.

      If my Sky card is activated and I've got all my equipment sorted, should I be ok then to plug and and go?

      When I worked for NTL & then Sky,I was always stopped by peeps looking cabling for what you needed.I'd make it up,give them the clips ext & I'd not expect anything but often I would be bunged a few quid for my trouble.In fact,I often earnt a few homers from it as well.
