    Hey guys,

    I'm looking into making my own TV coax cable (in the UK) to go between the TV aerial socket and the TV itself.

    I've gone so far as finding that the cable type should be CT100 / 75 Ohm, however I'm not sure whether I use a standard PVC sheathing, or go for a LSZH sheathing. One of my goals is to reduce RFI in the living room.

    Any suggestions on the types of plugs I should use would be welcome.

    Cheers!

    Thanks John,

    I eventually found my answers in another forum (www.smr-forums.com).

    Cheers!

    Hi John,

    Nope, I've tried Home Entertainment but it was pretty dire, AV Forum is a pretty reliable source. I'm more of an audio person anyway!

    Have fun (where applicable),
