    Moving a Sky HD box help please

    Got up nice and early to do some furniture moving around and went to move Tv unit but the nice Sky installer has only given me about an extra inch of cable to play with so i cannot move the Tv to where i need it to be .Its the main cable that comes throught the wall and into Sky box can i buy and extension bit to make it reach ? need to move it about 4ft away from where it is now .Any advice gratefully appreciated and rep will be left .

    Cheers

    You can, you will need two extension cables with "f " connectors at both ends and a male to male / back to back " f " connector, Maplins or eBay are your best bets for sourcing them.

    you can buy joining pieces from diy shop and just buy 2 metres of sat coax cable (make sure its sat cable) normal tv coax is no good

    homebase do the joining kit id imagine they would be easier for you to get to than maplns or waiting on fleabay

    Could try leaving the tv in place and just move the room.

    Yes of course, no problem.:thumbsup:

    You need something like this, remember you need two of them for your receiver.

    Crossed posts...;-)

    None of them are suitable, see my other post.

    you need this item no 270419533976 plus a length of sat coax cable 2m should be enough

    which is what inactive item is only 5m so i would go with his suggestion
