    Can anyone confirm that I can use high quality (CT125) satellite cable for an aerial downlead. I need some long runs for a multiroom system. I believe CT125 is better than CT100, can anyone confirm that this is the case and am I getting too carried away!
    Also sat downleads are 75ohm, are TV aerial downleads 75 or 50ohm?

    Cheers

    Dave

    P.s. Maplin are flogging CT125 at half price till tomorrow so I'm trying to find out quick!

    Cheers

    Dave

    No problems with it here m8, chose it for the exact same reasons. It's slightly less manageable because of the extra thickness and the standard plugs are no good .... but presume its going to a wall socket anyway.
    They are normally 75ohms
