Would sky be happy to use existing cabling to upgrade to multiroom and connect the 2nd feed on my HD box?
Currently I have a single feed to the HD box because the cabling is hidden under the floor and inside the walls, however we'll soon be running some new cabling as we need to replace a telephone extension that was damaged when some building work was done.
The plan is to run cat5/cat6 to various points in the house (Currently the network is mostly wi-fi and powerline)
as well as satellite grade coax to 2 locations
1) To enable the 2nd feed to the existing sky box
2) To enable a 2nd sky HD box to be installed in the adjacent room
We're quite happy to do the cabling work inside but not so happy about changing the LNB as I'm worried about knocking the alignment out on the minidish.
If the cabling was run to point where skys installer can easily get to it will they be happy to just do the final bit where they install a new LNB and connect it up or do I need to find an independent installer?
Also can anyone advise on what the recommended cabling to get as I presume not all "satellite grade" coax is created equal.
