Freesat - Which cable to connect box to wall socket?

Found 14th Feb 2013
Dumb question here... Picked up a freesat box for the bedroom yesterday, came with a scart cable (which i don't need) but no cable to connect the box to the satellite socket built into the wall?

Any ideas? Looks to be male at both ends too, is this normal?

It probably doesn't come with a satellite patch cable... the presumption is that you already have a satellite cable to screw into the back of the box.
Normally require F-Connector both sides with satellite ct100 cable. There are various degrees of quality on the cable. Most types will be suitable. Maplin sell cable relatively cheap for a couple of metres. Argos do a pre-made 10 metres extension fairly thin and white for £7.99.

You want something similar to this, although 1m might be a bit … You want something similar to this, although 1m might be a bit short.Satellite F Connector Plug to Plug RG59 Cable Black Lead GOLD 1m
