      If thats the case (and you said you had tested it in the master socket) you should think yourself lucky if you don't get a bill from Sky to cover the call out.

      The extension cable was hard wired into the master socket. How was I supposed to know! Thanks for the abuse though!

      This is why you should always unscrew the master socket and connect to the hidden
      TEST socket behind it as that isolates all internal wiring that may be the cause of the
      problem.

      I am guessing the openreach engineer didnt actualy visit your house because if they had found it was your internal wiring you could face a hefty bill for the callout.
